Basil Jones' Grocery Shop

Inside Basil Jones' shop ENOur best loved display is the 'Basil Jones Shop'. In 1994 the museum acquired a large amount of stock from a well known local grocer - Basil Jones.

This included packaging from as early as the 1930's. Our conservators had to remove some of the original stock such as biscuits to ensure that we did not create a 'pest problem'! The shop was then recreated within the museum. Often our visitors can remember the original shop and we have a 'memory book' where they can record their thoughts.
