Welcome to Bradworthy Transport Museum
and to the Ken Wilson Collection

The local garage owner said, without any encouragement I might add, "Best Private Collection" and yes, this isn't borrowed, the collection is Ken's, his own special love and realisation of a dream. Come and share his excitement and passion.

Ken's collection comprises over 100 historic vehicles - lorries, vans, cars, motorcycles, tractors, farm equipment and military vehicles dating back to 1914, along with other exhibits and associated memorabilia.

The intention was to open at the beginning of the 2006 season but Ken, being Ken, had to get it absolutely right and Autumn 2006 was a more realistic opening time. Since then Ken has welcombed thousands to his prized collection, andken and pat wilson shared his experiences as to how he came to rescue and gave new life to certain vehicles.

Enthusiast groups from all over have visited and given their seal of approval to this unique collection. Just to wet your appetite the collection includes numerous rare vehicles including a right hand drive Canadian Chrysler, a 1932 Hillman Minx and a 1948 Fordson 7V tipper lorry. Ken has acquired a 1928 Fiat saloon, a Nuffield tractor, a 1962 350 AJS and a Green Goddess Fire Engine which is being restored to original specification.

Ken is a very busy man with a total passion - but to be honest you are very likely to meet him if you visit - and if you do - well you will be inspired!
