Welcome To The Old Lawnmower Club


The Old Lawnmower Club was formed in 1990 to promote the collection, preservation and display of lawn mowers made from 1830 onwards. We have more than 500 members around the world.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in old lawn mowers. We participate in a number of events throughout the year at museums, garden shows, vintage rallies and steam fairs. You can find out more about what we do on this site.

Catch Up With Shed Of The Year

Old Lawnmower Club member John Barnard was recently featured as a finalist in the Channel 4 series "Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year" with some of his lawn mower collection, in a shed, naturally. If you're in the UK you can catch up with the series by clicking here, but don't wait too long as the streaming service is time-limited and will become unavailable in a week or two.

Working Steam Mower Spotted

We've heard from our special correspondent in the USA that volunteers at the Rough and Tumble Historical Association have completed restoring a rare Coldwell Steam Lawn Mower. This machine is now operational for the organisation's special 2016 Steam Show. It is believed to be the only operational steam mower in the world. You can also read additional information here (includes extra video clips).
