Pentillie Castle

In mid-September 2015 I was invited by a group of horological enthusiasts, who were on a tour of the south-west led by Steve & Jean Jackman who run the Quality Time clock courses in Sussex, to undertake a talk on the carriage clocks of Jacot and Drocourt at Pentillie Castle in Saltash, a wonderful small hotel with fine views over the Tamar and beyond. A quite sumptuous dinner was followed by a discussion of my research complete with images illustrating the various points made, alongside the viewing of thirty-five plus clocks by these two makers. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
