Other Horological Organisations, Events & Activities

The Dorset Clock Society

The Dorset Clock Society exists to further the study of clocks and watches, either by Dorset makers, or by like-minded people residing in Dorset or neighbouring counties. It has been running for approximately thirty years and caters for those with an interest in the various aspects of Horology. A few members are professional clock and watch repairers / restorers, some are collectors and others have a general interest in clocks and perhaps the historical aspects of the subject. The Society attracts a diverse membership and has about four or five formal meetings a year plus a summer barbeque and a celebratory Christmas dinner and occasionally a visit to a museum or collection.
