Orrery... A planetary model
of our solar system.

Peter Grimwood produces museum quality Orreries and other astronomical models. He also produces orrery designs for clients who want to build their own models and can supply gear sets for Orreries and Planetariums.

The orreries range from simple models showing the planets rotating around the Sun to models that show the earth rotating, the moon and its phases, leap years, eclipses and the annual rotation of the constellations around the pole star.

Restoration of antique orreries is carried out in a fully equipped workshop.
