A couple who founded a popular local visitor attraction are the latest names to be added to Farnham’s wall of notable names.

The late Madge Jackson and Henry Jackson shared a fascination for rural history and collected historical farming tools and equipment.

As their collection grew, friends suggested they open a museum. They listened to the advice and went on to open the Old Kiln Agricultural Museum in 1973.

Today the museum is a charitable trust and has been renamed the Rural Life Living Museum. The open-air museum boasts more than 40,000 agricultural artefacts including shops and other buildings saved from local villages.

To honour Madge and Henry’s lifelong project, friends, museum trustees and volunteers joined Farnham mayor Cllr Alan Earwaker as he unveiled a commemorative plaque.

Madge and Henry’s plaque is the 31st to appear on the Notable Names wall in South Street, which includes people who achieved great things in music, sport, art and the built environment.
