Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

New old guy from NC, USA

I'm a 63 year old collector from western NC, USA. My only UK mower is a Webb Witch. I have a few USA made side wheel models and a Flymo.

I'm also "into" garden tractors & riding mowers. We have a daughter and son-in-law that live in London so we will be making a trip there in the not too distant future and I'd like to see some mowers while there that I probably won't ever see otherwise.

Hello Tommy

Welcome to the club & forum, good to hear of your interest in mowers.

I run the 'Museum of Gardening' in Hassocks West Sussex where we have a large display of lawn mowers from 1860's to 1990's many rare and unusual ones, including a few early machines imported from the USA. Usually have around 60-70 mowers on display with many more in storage.

We are within easy reach of London, Central London to Hassocks being around 1hr 30min by car or 1hr by train.

I would be pleased to arrange to meet you & give a guided tour, including a behind the scenes look at our storage & workshops.

Perhaps drop me an email & we can take it from there, clive@museumofgardening.co.uk

Welcome to the forum and, hopefully, the club.

There is loads of information on this site, instruction manuals, photos, lots of good stuff.

It sounds like you may need to book a couple of extra seats on you return flight! :)

My husband thinks I’m obsessed with having 6 mowers! A lovely collection.
