Turret Clock Conservation in the North

Keith Scobie-Youngs

Clock face

After study in Birmingham and several years working with Public Clocks in London, in 1990 Keith (with his wife Lynn) established The Cumbria Clock Company based in Dacre. Rapidly gaining an enviable reputation, the company is now responsible for the maintenance of hundreds of clocks throughout the UK. It has carried out substantial restorations on some of the most prestigious clocks in the land and includes Durham Cathedral amongst its clientele. Recently it made and fitted a temporary mechanism to Big Ben to keep it going whilst its original mechanism was away for restoration.

Keith has worked on projects with at least two architect members of our Society and shared something of his knowledge and experience of clock and dial restorations here in the north.
