The life and work of master watchmaker Dr George Daniels, inset, has been marked by the erection of a Blue Plaque at his home and workshop at Riversdale, near Ramsey.

The plaque has been sponsored by The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, The British Horological Institute and The Antiquarian Horological Society.

Dr Daniels died in October 2011. In November 2012 part of his collection was sold by at auction, raising more than £8 million for the George Daniels Educational Trust, which helps students in the fields of horology, engineering, medicine, building or construction.
