British Commercial Vehicle Museum, Leyland, Spring Show

8th May 2016

A sunny warm day and a good turn out of vehicles and reasonable turn out of people in the morning when we were there. Plenty of lorries, land rovers, Fords, a few jeeps and a good collection of mixed cars from early to late. The museum is open and there's a charge to enter, well worth it, cafe as well. All staffed by volunteers.
