Quorn Australia – Heritage Walk

Quorn in South Australia is very proud of its heritage, and the museum team were delighted and grateful to Vicki Parker who sent us a copy of their ‘Quorn Heritage Walk’ brochure. Quorn in Australia was named after John Henry Boyer Warner, from Quorn Hall in our village, who was the private secretary to the Governor of South Australia.

Our distant namesake was laid out in 1878 – its grid like road system is very different to the bendy streets of our Quorn! It is interesting as well to note that one of the places nearby is called Cradock - surely there must be a another local connection?

Please note, the resolution of this brochure is lower than the original, in order to reduce the size of the file.
