Welcome to Riversdale clocks,
We are sorry to inform our followers and the many trade and retail customer old and new, that after over twenty five years Riversdale Clocks will no longer be carrying out antique clock repairs and restoration, or making longcase clock cases due to the retirement of the proprietor and founder Barry Share.
Although the service side of the clock repair business has been disbanded, after much thought the team at Riversdale acknowledge the fact that there is a need and a growing demand for clock repair and restoration information from antique clock restorers and clock making enthusiasts.
So with a unanimous decision and with enthusiasm and dedication this site will stay up and running, passing on the knowledge, tips and tricks acquired after many years in the industry.
We will endeavour to supply information on all the best clock plans, inform you on where to find the best clock parts and tooling, not just for horological repairs but woodworking and finishing.
We will be reviewing horological books and products giving you our honest opinion and advice helping you to make the best purchases for you, not the manufacturer.
Coming up very shortly we are opening access to our clock making course. With everything you need to know on making a case for a restored movement and dial.
The site is currently under construction but do bookmark it if you are interested in the topic because we will be expanding the site very quickly with topics on horological history, articles and thoughts on case making and repairs.
