Aldridge Transport Museum Open Day today!


One for all the diesel strokers out there.

So, another great event today (Sunday 12th July 2015) – Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge will be a hive of activity again as they hold their Annual Open Day featuring 50 years of the Ford Transit!

The museum, which is in Shenstone Drive, just off Northgate, opens from 10:00am and the event runs until late afternoon. It’s £5 entry for adults, £2 for kids and a family ticket is £13.

There are free bus services operating all day between the museum and a whole range of local areas, operated by museum vehicles – see the timetable below, just turn up and ride! The museum have made the following announcement on their Facebook Event page though:

Are you coming to the Running Day tomorrow? We do hope so, but, if you are, please note that the Park and Ride location is not as previously advertised, but will be the Aldridge Community Centre Car Park, which is accessed from Middlemore Lane, very close to our old Park and Ride site by Anchor Meadow – for satnav users, the post code is WS9 8AN.

The timetable is unchanged, but a corrected version is posted here, as a few little typing errors had crept in. Looking forward to seeing everyone – and to our visiting vehicles, including – something different – a selection of Transits and a new Platinum bus from Walsall.

For any last minute updates you can check the Facebook Open Day event page here.

There will also be a display of all types of road transport, with the whole site opened up so that visitors can also see what the volunteers get up to.

For more information, check out the museum website or their Facebook group.


A chance to ride on some vintage vehicles.
