Opening Run 5/4/2020 Pitstone Green Museum of Rural Life, Beds. Charles Smith & Angus Tozer
A fantastic museum/heritage park, established in the redundant buildings of an old Victorian farm in the shadow of Ivinghoe Beacon. A registered charity, it is run entirely by volunteers, and is open to the public only a few times a year but will have a dedicated opening for the Morgan ThreeWheeler Club. Last year they had an open day for the Morgan Sports Car Club and the Ford Model T Club and the reports back have been excellent.
They have an amazing eclectic collection that will keep you entertained for hours no matter what the weather on the day. The collection includes a running 27 litre
Crossley gas engine used to drive mill shafting and mill stones, a working sawmill, a forge, a steam car, a collection of farm machinery and stationary engines; an Avro Lancaster bomber cockpit along with navigator’s and radio operator’s stations; reconstructed shops include plumber, cobbler, potter, dairy, wheelwright and book binding. Other interests include a model railway and model engineering. Too many interests to include here.
The Pitstone Green Museum, is on the north side of the Chilterns near Aylesbury and is conveniently located for many Morgan owners, being 40 miles north west of London and 65 miles south east of Coventry. There will be ample parking in the orchards surrounding the farm. Entry at £12 per person includes a large ploughman’s lunch and as much tea and coffee as you can drink. But you must book.
