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.

Annual Rally Auction 2019

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).

Countdown to 30th Annual Rally

Our Annual Rally takes place in just under two weeks at Milton Keynes Museum on 18/19 May. This will be our 30th Annual Rally since the very first event at the museum in 1990 which established the Club. To mark this landmark the theme this year will be "the first mower in my collection". We hope that our members will bring along the mower that got them started on the collection, preservation and display of old lawn mowers. That does not necessarily mean, of course, the oldest machine in their collection (although it may for some). Club Members can log onto the site to access more detailed information about the event in our special section.
