Churches

The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers has a close association with The Guild Church of St Dunstan-in-the-West in Fleet Street.  There is a Memorial to  Henry Jones, unfortunately behind the iconostasis, and there are records of three other distinguished clockmakers who were buried in the church or churchyard.  These are Benjamin Hall, Christopher Pinckbeck and the most eminent Thomas Mudge.   There was also a long history of Master Clockmakers as Church Wardens in the 17th and 18th Century.

There are free lunchtime classical music recitals at St Dunstan-in-the-West on Wednesdays from 1.15 pm to 2.00 pm (you need to scroll down to find them on this page!)

The Installation of the new Master and Wardens at the start of each year has for some time now taken place at Painters’ Hall in Little Trinity Lane.  The Installation Service takes place at St James Garlickhythe, and the Clockmakers’ Company contributed to the cost of building the new parish room at the church.
