Bourton-on-the-Water – 17 October 2018

We got the bus to Bourton-on-the-Water, an attractive and picturesque Cotswold town, which just happens to have a motor museum.

Dedicated petrol heads may be better off at Gaydon up the road, which has lots more cars, but this place is in a nice setting and is as much a social history and advertising experience as a motor museum.

Advertising signs

The place is full of enamel advertising signs, most of it motoring related, but lots of other stuff as well.

Not  only are the floors and walls full, we didn’t even see the Raleigh Chopper dangling from the rafters until after looking at the photo.

Just to top things off, here is a farmyard animal:

Another nice thing about this place is that it is not a regiment of exhibits like most motor museums – there are no ropes keeping you away from the items.  There were also plenty of volunteers around willing to answer any questions.  A return visit is a must to take in all the things we missed.
