Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford near Yeovil contains over 400 cars and motorcycles and a collection of other automobilia.
Nunney is represented in the museum’s collection with a 1936 Delahaye that once belonged to racing legend and Lord of the Manor of Nunney, Rob Walker.
Mr Walker ran the most successful privately-owned Formula One racing team in racing history, with famous drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss.
The Museum was opened on 10 July 1985 by the then Land Speed Record holder Richard Noble OBE.
Since then the collection’s international theme expanded as vehicles from around the globe were acquired increasing numbers from a humble 29 to nearly 400 in 30 years – an amazing feat by anyone’s standards.
Haynes International Motor Museum has spent £4.2m on an upgrade that saw its halls transformed and brought right up to date.
As a result, the venue is used intensively for conferences and awards ceremonies. The halls have level wooden walkways that are easy to navigate for users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
The halls provide a very interesting journey through motoring history that will entertain visitors of all ages (even if you’re not a car enthusiast!).
