Filling in the gaps - we need your help

Some museum artefacts have information missing. In some cases we are confident that a photo is of Quorn or is related to Quorn, but we cannot locate the village area or buildings, or perhaps people in the photo are unknown.

Local knowledge required

As you view the collection, artefacts with missing information will be highlighted, and we also list them below. If you can contribute information about any of these items, please contact us.
