Our verdict on this title : 7/10

A good book and obviously a must-have for those interested in Yorkshire Clocks. I particularly like the preliminary chapters (for which Mr Loomes is a little apologetic!) which deal with 'What was a Clockmaker', 'Dials' and 'Cases'. These add much value to these regional listing books which are typically very 'dry'.

Some clockmakers entries still only warrant a single line , but the couple I've referenced so far have added quite a bit of details to that available elsewhere.

Although out of print this brand-new signed copy is available at the published price of £19.50
