What's on at the Spelthorne Museum

1 Elmsleigh Road, Staines TW18 4PM

Take a closer look at....

The pages in this section are very graphic heavy, there are animated pictures and regular ones, Hopefully you will gain a better knowledge of these items as you can see them close up. Have a look and see what you think. Each animated picture will stay for 10 seconds, and they are continuously going through the photos so if you need more time to look they will be coming around again in a short while. Please don't think they aren't working, 10 seconds is longer than we think!

Some of our Victorian items in the Museum

These items are in the Elmsleigh Room at the back. If you can't come to us you can see them here.

Neolithic items

These items were found in the local area, and show that people lived here many, many years ago.

The Fire Engine

The full Fire Engine and below are the animated photos


The Victorian Section of the Thames Room

Parts of the large Mangle. Do you remember these?

Watch your fingers in this machinery!

A 'blue' bag that helped white laundry to stay white, and soap with pegs

After the laundry had been done the clothes and linen needed ironing, these irons were heated over a fire and used. More than one would be on the heat so that when one cooled another hot one could be used.
