It is a very small museum, but inside we saw some interesting displays, vehicles and relics found in the area. It was also staged as a stop in the route of a convoy of historic military vehicles. Sadly the convoy didn't arrive as advertised, but there were several Willys Jeeps and an enthusiastic group of re-enactors camped in the cold park outside.

￼Meanwhile the days are getting shorter and colder. Time to get the MGB GT out for those nice winter days.
But before that we had a nice drive in the roadster, just before winter storage.
More clearing the shed: this rear section went to the scrap man.
Feels right at home with the Sevens. Though this is a later Mini, the first Minis were of course called "Mini Seven".

This is a rather more modern machine than most of the machines in our collection. This one was bought new probably around 1967 and now we have inherited this family heirloom. That means we know where it came from and who used it, so it deserves a special place in the collection.
Here's is a link to a video about this model if you want to see a demonstration.
The accessories box folds under the foot
And when all the hard work is done you can pack the machine in this neat case.

singersewinginfo.co.uk shows that this machine was actually manufactured in the Singer factory Taiwan in the Seventies as a "Nostalgia"series.
