This Sunday 3rd October, join Amberley Museum in a celebration of the creation of the West Sussex Museum!
Since 1978, on every first Sunday of October, an Autumn Gathering has taken place to celebrate the Museum, its collections, volunteers and to show a number of historic vehicles that have visited the Museum over the years. Celebrate this anniversary event with Amberley Museum this Sunday 3rd October and see a variety of over 170 vehicles on display dating from 1896-1970.!
- The oldest vehicle will be an 1896 Benz which will be brought by Gordon Cobbold who has attended every Autumn Gathering at Amberley since it started in 1978.
- Over half of the motor cars on display were built before the second world war, and feature major makes of the era such as Rolls Royce, Austin 7s, Morgan, Humber and Standard.
- There will be an unusual, yet special reunion of two Wallis & Steevens Steam Rollers. This will be the first time they have been together since they were built in 1938!
- The Museum’s Racksaw Bench will be running for the first time in 3 years by a visiting steam traction engine.
Visitors can chat, learn and reminisce with Volunteers and vehicle owners, across the Museum grounds.
The Museum’s Vintage Buses and Steam Train will be giving passenger rides throughout the day!
