J.W Benson Ltd

The firm of J.W.Benson was established in 1749, but there seems little information on its history in published sources. Whatever its origins, the firm gained recognition as one of the leading nineteenth century makers of turret clocks – chiefly dating from 1860 onwards.

The firm continued in business well into the twentieth century. (Ref:- James W Benson of Ludgate Hill – Turret Clock Makers by Mike Bundock and Chris McKay ISBN No 0-9538977-7-X)
