New Museum At Copped Hall

Club member Roy Osborne has recently created a small museum at Copped Hall in Essex to display some of his collection. Copped Hall is only open occasionally but you can check the dates and times on its website.

There are many other museums around the world that display old lawn mowers as part of their collections. You can see a list here.

Another Successful Annual Rally

We had another brilliant Annual Rally at Milton Keynes Museum on the weekend of 19/20 May. This year the weather was sunny and warm, which made a welcome change, and there were loads of really interesting mowers on show.

You can see a selection of the mowers and some of the members who were present by clicking these links.

See who won some of the event's big prizes.

There is also a list of the auction results from the Sunday morning.

Annual Rally Auction

The auction is one of the most popular features of our Annual Rally at Milton Keynes Museum. It gives our members a chance to add to their collections without the hassle of going to junk sales or using online auction sites. On the other hand, it also gives our members a good way to pass on unwanted and duplicate mowers to other collectors and fellow enthusiasts.

We've been holding the auction for some years now and during that time we've seen hundreds of mowers and associated items bought and sold. The small commission we charge is donated the museum. You can see a list of the entries for this year's auction here (we'll be adding to the list in the run up to the event but we cannot accept late entries).
