A Ride to Mouldsworth Motor Museum, UK - Many Pics.

Had a nice ride out for a few hours today despite the rain. I have wanted to go and visit this museum called 'Mouldsworth Motor Museum' for a long time. My dad took me there probably 30 years ago and I wanted to see it again now that I can appreciate some of the stuff they have.

I had the Gopro set on Timelapse and grabbed a few of the pictures on the way there. The pictures from the Museum are bit bit farther down.

I needed Fuel but didn't stop at my local as it's 1.46 a litre. I now wish i had as It was even more where I did fill up.


I'm Not waiting behind this lot.



I'll filter to the front.



Speed Camera!



The fields are yellow everywhere at this time of year. Loads of cyclists about. Didn't see any running dogs over. :loll



Get past all these Sunday drivers



Going over the canal bridge at Lymm. Starting to rain heavier now.



Stopping for Fuel before getting on the M56. 3.4 Gallons - 23.78!





Some HD/Choppers waiting out the rain in the Petrol station. They were inside drinking Cappucino's :loll



Joining the M56. Love this slip road, it's a constant radius for about 1/2 mile. Bit greasy today though.



I was stuck behind this dipstick who was hogging the outside lane for about 2 miles. Not going to undertake him though with all the cameras about. Showed him my lights in both his mirrors but he had no idea I was there.



Off the Motorway at last. Crossing the swing bridge at Frodsham.



On the road to Delamere forest. A great road normally but today it was wet and covered in cow S^&t



A village fair was being held in Manley, So they had cars parking in a field on the other side of the road from the fair and this lot were helping people across the road.



Here it is, Mouldsworth Motor Museum. The building used to be a water works, but has been a museum since the 1970's.



Ditch the the GoPro and get other camera out now. Here's a few from inside. There are loads more if your not bored yet. Click on one to go to the album.

the museum is a 'working museum'. There are not many 'concours' cars and bikes here. They are all used (some more than others) and they are often worked on right in the middle of the museum.








































































































Thanks for looking.

Great pics - What an 'auto treasure-trove' that place is! Love the way it is all just thrown together.

What an amazing glorious fiasco of higgeldy piggeldy stuff. And great photography to capture all that you did. Some odd mementos of my youth appeared here and there in the jumble.

Wow!

That's a really cool museum.
It's like wandering into someones old garage and finding a collection of classic cars.

Much better than the glossy stainless steel and glass modern ones.

Thanks for sharing.
Q~

P.S. The GoPro time lapse pictures at the beginning are a nice addition.
