Important News

Please check my Christmas and New Year Opening Times.

More news on the future of
Clifton Curios Models.

By now most of you will have heard the rumours regarding the closure of Breedon Priory. The closure, at the end of February 2019, has now been confirmed as true.

The site will, in the future, be developed as residential properties. The commercial buildings will no longer be part of the development.

On Saturday 17th November 2018 I received official notification that Breedon Priory Granary Barn, along with other venues on site will close on the 28th February 2019.

At this point in time I have made no decision as to the future of my model business.

I will continue trading at Breedon for as long as possible.

I will be open on the given dates for the Christmas and New Year Period and hope to see you over the festive season.

I sincerely hope that you will come along and enjoy your visit.

I should be in a better situation to give you further details by mid January.

From Saturday 24th November I will have a book where you can leave your contact details, telephone number, or email, or both, so that I can keep you updated with news of the model shop.

You can also email me at to be put on a mailing list for information. Apart from your email contact details, no further information will be kept on my computer - I believe that this fits in with the spirit of  the current GDPR rules. This information will not be shared with anyone else. General news letters and updates will be sent using BCC to further protect your email details.

I am continuing to take orders for models and ancillary products as before.
