The Braund Museum

We have a collection of artefacts relating to the Braund family. These have been purchased using society donations and subscriptions or have been given to us for safe-keeping. We display these at reunions and fairs wherever possible. Some are illustrated below. We are also aware of many similar items in private hands and we would welcome details so that they may be included in this virtual museum along with the others shown here. Contact braund@one-name
