Success! We had a visitor today looking for a coroners report for a relative of his. With help from our friends on Colnbrook Village History Page we have managed to locate a copy.
If you need help with research please drop us a message and we will do our best to help.
If you’ve been to the museum today or have an interest in Colnbrook history please join the Colnbrook Village History Page.
The fire engine’s out of the shed and we are open!

🌸Thank you & Review from local group 🌸
Well, what a lovely way to spend a wet Monday morning!
Thank you to you (Peter) and Dave and also to the staff at the coffee morning for hosting some of the members of the Slough u3a Local History group. Everyone seems to have really enjoyed our visit and I am sure we have all learned a lot.
Many thanks for giving up your time to show us around-and thank you too for the booklet that I will enjoy reading and is a useful addition to our group resources.

I’ve been sitting in the museum doing some research for the Colnbrook Village History page and came across these newspaper clippings when the museum was still an idea……
If you would like to do some research into Colnbrook’s history or residents then drop an email to [email protected] to arrange an appointment.
Museum open for visits on Monday 13th December as part of Village Hall coffee morning. Come and see us!
Thank you Brian Moriarty for your review. Glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you also to Pete Hood for showing him around.
Please come along and have a coffee at the Village Hall and combine it with a visit.
If you have some spare time we are always looking for volunteers. All sorts of requirements from gardening to DIY to cleaning to showing people around. You can volunteer on a one off basis if you can’t commit to a regular thing.
We are compiling a register of volunteers who we can call on when we need help so if you are interested please let us know.
You can email [email protected] or message us on Facebook messenger.
Thank you in advance.
A quick post to recognise and thank Dave & Maureen Bradbury who clean the museum for us regularly. Dave is an ex-fireman who enjoys looking after our fire engine keeping the brass polished. We are very grateful to both of them for volunteering their time.
Thank you to all those who popped into the museum this morning. Attendees at the Colnbrook Village Hall coffee morning were able to view exhibits at the same time.
If you did visit please take a minute to leave a review. Thank you.
It’s hoped this may be a regular thing so we will keep you updated.
If you’d like to visit please email us for an appointment [email protected]
