My passion for fixing clocks began in the mid 1970s after someone gave me an antique wall clock.
It ran perfectly but I dismantled and rebuilt it anyway. I still have it.
Over the next 30 years I acquired more than 150 clocks, mostly antique but some modern ones as well, just to study them. I still have most of those, too, plus a horological library bigger than Essex Council.
But a sheer lack of space forced me to stop and I now satisfy my passion by repairing other people's.
