The English Carriage Clock Company in Bridport, Dorset makes the HENLEY Carriage Clock, the only carriage clock made in England!
The English Carriage Clock Company was set up in 2011 by the late Richard Batten, a jeweller and horologist. The famous HENLEY Carriage Clock was originally made by his friend, Roger Field. When Roger retired in 1997 the production of the HENLEY Carriage Clock ceased. Rather than see it disappear completely, Richard decided to re-establish the business. All the original tooling, press tools, gear cutting engines and many components were shipped from Roger Field’s home in Henley to their new home in Bridport.
In 2011 Richard started making these fine handcrafted time pieces again in Bridport. In 2012, he was very proud to be commissioned to make a Henley Carriage clocks to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee.
When Richard sadly died in May 2016 the business was taken over by his wife, Kata Seprenyi-Batten
