Bibury to Banbury?

Wow, what does this mean?

No, our fair isn’t moving to Banbury, but I am very proud to say that Sof and Charlotte from Antique Modern Mix in Parsons Street, Banbury have accepted an item of my stock for display for a few months. If this is liked by visitors, they may well accept a few more bits and bobs, here’s hoping!

I went to North Oxfordshire Technical College for a year in the mid 1980’s and as such Banbury was great place for me and still has so many happy time memories, my first “Home from Home!”

So, if anyone likes Oak Longcase Clocks, (this has been at the bottom of my stairs for a couple of years, so I’m going to have to add another there now or I won’t sleep!), here is an appealing Oak case 30 hour movement with great strike and a solid tick tock sound from the pleasantly resounding case. Made by George Jackson in the last quarter of the 18th Century, according to some reference books, 1784 was the  approximate date, but I’m sure a picture is better than my witterings, so here is the clock……….in-situ, in Banbury! Have a look at the website of their shop, it’s

Happy browsing!banbury shop clock
