The Haynes Motor Museum 15-11-2022.

Rich & Debs last visited the museum in their Red Triumph GT6 on a summer's day in 1996 with the Triumph Sports Six Club. Back then the museum had less exhibits as it was still growing, on arrival they parked their GT6 with the other Bristol Triumph Club cars by (from memory) a T34 Tank on a plinth at front of house! This was gone on our return visit 26 years later, and what a brilliant slick museum and collection of Cars and Motorcycles it is today, run by friendly helpful staff and volunteers. The museum has many excellent well-presented exhibits and shows visitors the complete history of motoring. After the visit we decided to return home via our previous GT6 route in 1996, although the weather was very wet and the roads a lot busier (and probably slower), on our way back to Bristol we also took in some ex-Somerset and Dorset Railway surviving sights such as Evercreech Station and Charlton Viaduct at Shepton Mallet, both closed to rail traffic in 1966. This was an ideal great day out for a wet winter's day!
