Quorn Then and Now

Many historical village locations can still be identified today. Whilst our modern streets are more likely to contain cars rather than kids, where buildings have been photographed there is a good chance of identifying the exact spot where a photographer stood in past times. We've done our best in this section to match the historical image with the modern version.
