Thanks Nick for producing a summer events program for us. It included the Whitewebbs Museum of Transport which was having an American car thing on at Bank Holiday weekend. I had been meaning to go there for the last 30 years and never gotten around to it.
Unfortunately for the poor organisers the weather wasn’t with them and rain was tipping down for most of the day. What American cars did turn up soon left again. This was in a way better for us. We had room to stand back and take pictures of those that were left against the atmospheric backdrop.
The museum consists of three floors of vintage cars and motorbikes as well as models and war memorabilia. Everything is spotless. There is a yard containing a fire station set up complete with fire engine and a train carriage containing model train layouts. Last but not least there is a very reasonably priced cafe which does a nice bit of Angel Cake and hot sausage rolls amongst other things.
It was a couple of hours well spent and we would certainly go back there again just to see what is parked in front of the auto shop if nothing else. Opening is on Tuesdays and the last Sunday of the month 10am-4pm.
