A Dorset Collection of Clocks
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The clock collection focusses on the "Golden Age" of clock making in Dorset, from the late 17th to the 19th century. Most impressive is the display of "Longcase", or "Grandfather" clocks, arranged chronologically to show the development of styles. Also on display are mechanisms of public clocks, such as those often found on churches or other public buildings. There are also clocks from across England and as far away as France.
Owermoigne featured in the writings of Thomas Hardy, who called the town Nethermoynton. Also in Owermoigne is the Old Mill Cider Museum.
