Amberley Museum celebrates anniversary with vintage vehicles
HERITAGE enthusiasts will take a step back in time as a museum celebrates its anniversary.
The Amberley Museum near Arundel will mark the 43rd anniversary of an autumn gathering that brought together those interested in historical collections and transport, which encouraged growth in the museum’s collections and opened them the following year .
This year’s event, which takes place this Sunday, October 3, will celebrate its volunteers over the years and show a variety of more than 170 vehicles on display, dating as far back as 1896.
More than half of the cars on display date from before WWII and major brands from the era will be on display at the show, including Rolls Royce, Austin 7 and Humber and Standard.
The show’s oldest vehicle, an 1896 Benz, will be brought in by Gordon Cobbold – who has attended every fall rally in Amberley since 1978.
The museum’s cog saw will also operate for the first time in three years during the event by a visiting steam locomotive, with their vintage buses and steam train providing rides to passengers throughout the day. .
Tickets for the event are available on their website.
The Amberley Museum, located in the heart of the South Downs, has a team of some 300 volunteers to run the exhibits and interact with visitors, many of whom previously worked in the industries represented at the museum.
