Worcester

Transport and Machinery

Monthly on Wed at 2pm at Rushwick Village Hall WR2 5TA or visits as arranged. (Both time and day of visits may vary, depending on the requirements of the place visited.)

Scroll down for pictures from some of our visits. Photos from other snappers on the trips would be very welcome!

Leader and Contact: Denis Compton.

The Transport and Machinery Group embraces all aspects of transport and static machinery. There is no restriction on numbers so if you're interested, do come along - the more the merrier! Although I am acting as Group co-ordinator for administrative purposes I am not any kind of expert. As a result I look to members to give presentations on their particular interests, propose visits and otherwise contribute to the Group.

The programme for the rest of 2021-22 is listed under 'Dates for your Diary'. More information on the events will be added as they are arranged

Here are some of the suggestions we have had for future visits - all that’s needed is someone to organise them. If you fancy picking up one of these or one of your own, please let me know;

  • Aerospace Museum Bristol;
  • Swindon Railway Museum;
  • National Motorcycle Museum;
  • National Waterways Museum Gloucester;
  • Glos and Warks Railway

Here are some photos by Pete Ager of the trip to the Bugatti Heritage Centre (before the pandemic)
