Local collections

Our Local Collection cabinets are in our Sadler Gallery and feature artefacts, collections and exhibitions that we think are really interesting. They all relate to local history, have been owned by a local resident or friend of The Spring, or are linked to an area of our work.

If you have a collection or artefacts that you think our visitors may be interested in please contact Kate Saunders, Participation and Heritage Manager, on


Once Upon a Time

Monday 1 August - Thursday 29 September

Clare Jefferson Jones started creating these books in 2011 when she created seven books as table numbers for her wedding reception, each book was a scene related to her and her husband’s life.  Since then she has gone on to make many more books developing different scenes and themes. Using paper cutting, wire and card each scene is individually designed and created using old book pages and discarded old books.
