Fred Dibnah visits William Haycock Ltd.

Steeplejack, steam enthusiast, and television personality the late Fred Dibnah visited our premises in the autumn of 2004 in the course of filming what was to be his final tour of some of Britains most interesting historic industrial sites.and businesses.



During his visit Fred was shown the full range of products manufactured by William Haycock Ltd., including wall and grandfather clocks.

As well as the finished articles Fred was also given some insight into the traditional methods still employed by the firm to produce clock movements of the highest quality.
