Everyone likes a mystery so Wimborne Model Town is hoping someone will come up with an answer as to the origins of a particular item.
It is a gold coloured cross, which was discovered more than 30 years ago on the levelled former site of the charity tourist attraction behind the Corn Market.
The cross was found and stored by an anonymous visitor to the attraction’s former home after the miniature buildings had been moved to King Street prior to redevelopment of the site. It was recently returned to model town supporter and contractor Paul Revell. An archive search has not been able to identify the item in situ in the model layout.
Model town spokesman, Greg Hoar, said: “Archive pictures do not show this cross in our miniature minster and, although the old site was adjacent to funeral director Charles Small, subsequent enquiries suggest the item is not a coffin adornment.”
The model town, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, would be very pleased to receive reminiscences about the old site including any possible identification of the cross via e mail to email@example.com or call 07503 699370.
The popular family destination reopens to the public on 2 April.
