Our Thomas Tompion clock has stopped, it stopped in November, not sure of the date.  Today Toby Birch of Montpellier Clocks, Cheltenham came out to diagnose the problem.  

Toby said, “When did it stop?”

“November, not sure when”.

“Oh spooky - Thomas Tompion died November 20th 1713”. 

Almost exactly 300 years to the day....
