50 Years Ago

Brian Jones, founding member of the Rolling Stones, was a volunteer at Crich in the very early years, travelling with fellow volunteers from his home town of Cheltenham on several occasions. The late John Appleby's 14 August 1960 picture shows him in the right foreground.

Brian was to die nine years later in the swimming pool of his Sussex mansion.

In the second, present-day picture, the red wagon is standing at approximately the same spot.
