In 1860 new premises were built in Station Street where turret clock and domestic clocks were made. Thomas had two sons, William and Thomas Junior who both worked there. In 1865 the brothers went their separate ways. Thomas Juniors branch closed in 1906 after his death. William died in 1904 and the company still exists with descendants of the brothers working there. Both Thomas Haycock & Son and William Haycock produced fine skeleton clocks.
