Where are they now ?


Some of our Centre's relics are the personal property of our members, and as is the nature of things, members perhaps move and take their relics to another Centre nearer their new home. Likewise we sometimes add to the Centre's exhibits this way. Also from time to time other stock are loaned to other societies and we often receive exhibits in return.

This is a list of exhibits that have moved away from Quainton for various reasons. It is not necessarily complete, though it will be updated as time permits and information becomes available.
