THE historic nooks and crannies of one of Ashbourne’s oldest workshops has been showcased using the latest technology.
Freelance photographer Rod Kirkpatrick has used specialist equipment to capture a 360-degree view of the fascinating building in North Leys, where William Haycock Ltd, the oldest family-run clock making business in Britain, manufactures its stunning timepieces.
Wooden benches, pulley-wheels and belts power ancient lathes and equipment amid stacks of cogwheels, clock faces and hand-tools giving a reminder of an era when British craftsmen and engineers made things that were the envy of the World.
Neil and his father, Charles, 79, have already begun making a collection to mark the family’s bi-centenary of clock making in the town in two year’s time.
