Aldridge Transport Museum Open Day today!

Looking for something interesting to do today after the recent poor weather? Why not take the kids to this… there’s something for folk of all ages!

Beecham Business Park on Northgate, Aldridge will be a hive of activity again today when Aston Manor Transport Museum hold their 25th Annual July Open Day. This will be the first year that it is not based at the Old Tram Depot in Witton, but with most of the vehicles and artefacts stored on that site now over at Aldridge, it will be almost home from home.

With free bus services going to Walsall, Sutton, a Barr Beacon circular and a link with Chasewater Railway that will coincide with their train timetable, this promises to be even better than the 24 previous events. There will also be a display of all types of road transport on Beecham Business Park, with the whole site opened up so that visitors can also see what else takes place.

While there will be a small admission charge to go on site, there will also be an opportunity for visitors to see inside the museum store where, for the enthusiast, there will also be some sales stands to occupy them – and other visitors may well find something of interest there too. Food and drink will be available also and something to occupy the children as well, if they get tired of the bus rides.

The previous 2 open days held recently did allow visitors to park their cars on site, but with display vehicles as well, car parking will be easily available on other sites close by with just a short walk to Beecham Business Park.

First bus service (to Walsall) leaves at 10.00am with the event starting then as well, and continuing until around 5.00pm.

    I missed the open day, when is there likely to be another one. My friend who has recently died and was very interested in old buses, has in his loft many copies of Bus and Coach Preservation, and it seems ,as they are in pristene condition , wrong to just throw them away. Have you any ideas. My husband and I thoroughly enjoy visiting these museums ands regularly visit the Motor Museum in Coventry.
