Market Lavington Museum

More from The Spring Filling Station


The post about the village petrol station, a few days ago, created quite a lot of comment. Photos from the 1970s are within the living memory of many and one person – the sea-scout leader at the time, believes the two scouts had the surnames Onslow and Knight. Does that ring any extra bells with people?  Click here for a reminder of the photo used.

As mentioned in that previous article, the garage became the Shires Garage and a key ring and fob has just come to light, commemorating that time.

Shires Garage key fob, now at Market Lavington Museum

The garage used shire horses as a motif and they appear on the other side of the fob.

This key ring and fob was found at the back of a drawer and is the latest item to be given to the museum – a small item which records what many might consider as recent history.

Any other memorabilia from the villages of Market Lavington and Easterton would be greatly appreciated.
