Longcase Clock

In our Fabric shop in Bridport, we have the most beautiful longcase clock with painted face, bought at a recent sale by the owner of Livingstone Textiles. It takes pride of place at the top of the stairs by the entrance to the main shop and is much admired by customers and staff alike.  It is slightly unusual in that it was actually made by a Bridport resident and clock maker by the name of Thomas Farnham.  Thomas was a watch and clockmaker residing in West Street, Bridport.  It was he who newly made the Charmouth church clock in 1830 and the Symondsbury church clock in 1843 as well as repairing the Whitchurch Canonicorum church clock between 1824 and 1847. We’re proud to have a large piece of local history in our Bridport shop to share with you so pop in and have a look at it when you’re next in Bridport, it’s a lovely thing. We are open from 9-5 Monday to Saturday and you can also visit us at
