Restored Horstmann self-winding clock comes home to Museum

The unique Horstmann wall clock of 1866, after extensive restoration at Clockworks of London, was officially started by Antony Horstmann – the inventor’s great grandson, at the Museum of Bath at Work on June 20th. This clock was originally designed to wind itself using Gustav Horstmann’s patent heat motor. 

To an invited audience of Friends of the Museum of Bath at Work Chairman of Bath Industrial Heritage Trust Edward Cross, Chairman of the Friends Euel Lane and Sara Frears – daughter of the museum founder Russell Frears – officially launched the 2019 Fundraising Appeal, once the clock had been started!
