Cut a dash in a vintage car at Backbarrow

Published on April 7, 2019 by elbry2@aol.com

I just went to do some videoing of the river down at Backbarrow and whilst I was there I thought I would check out the  The Lakeland Historic Car Club . They meet on the first Saturday of every month at the museum . Everyone is welcome to attend whether you're an owner, enthusiast or just keen to see some great examples of some classic local cars. It starts at about 10am with loads of much loved cars and their owners turning up. Everyone is very willing to chat about their vehicle and even let you sit in on occasions.

Backbarrow Motor museum Address: Old Blue Mill, Backbarrow, Ulverston LA12 8TA

A nostalgic visit suitable for all ages, this museum is located in Backbarrow,only 2 miles from Woodside and 15 mins drive from Fell View, on the site of the former Backbarrow Blue Mill – best known for manufacturing the washing additive, Dolly Blue. Well-behaved dogs are welcome throughout the exhibition areas free of charge, but do note that Café Ambio next door doesn’t accept dogs.

Motor Museum, dogs are welcome

30,000 exhibits that trace the development of road transport throughout the twentieth century - cycles, motorbikes, motor cars and automobilia.

Housed in a converted mill in the heart of the Lake District, we’re minutes from Lake Windermere and offer joint tickets with Windermere Lake Cruises and other local attractions.

Much more than just a motor museum, their  local history and period shopping displays, authentic recreations and picturesque riverside cafe makes it a great day out for the whole family.
