A History of Clocks, Watches and Barometers in a provincial town from 1700 until 1900 Including a Directory of the makers in the town of Grantham in Lincolnshire.

Hugh's interest in clocks began at an early age; when ever he stayed for his annual weeks visit to his maternal grandmother in Lincoln, he was always greeted by "Oh Hugh, I'm pleased you have come, you will be able to get my clock going."

Getting the clock going was not a major problem, apparently it only needed the weights re-hanging and the occasional squirt of cycle oil. It is likely that Grandma Watson stopped the clock as soon as he departed but it sowed the seeds of interest and a belief, albeit mistaken, that he had a natural talent for such things.

Married to Doreen for 46 years with a son Denzil; Hugh has lived and worked in Lincolnshire for over 40 years. He helped arrange an exhibition some years ago of locally made clocks and watches in Grantham Museum which proved very popular. His catalogue of the exhibits sold very well so he resolved to write a more comprehensive account. Retirement led to more time to devote to his hobbies. Recognised as an expert on provincial horological matters this book is the result of many years of research and experience.
