Amberly Museum

On Sunday we visited Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre and took a trip down memory lane. The weather was kind unlike the previous Saturday and the following Monday. Here are a few photo’s to give you a feel for this venue if you have never visited before.

Aveling-Barford Road Roller 758, “Gisela” Built in 1946. How many of you, like me, remember these fabulous beasts rumbling down the road and the smell of fresh, hot, tarmac being laid ?

Being a Sussex lad, I have ridden on many busses bearing the distinctive Southdown livery.

During my pre-teens our local garage, in Westfield, was very much like this.
