This week Uncle Tweed has been visiting the British Lawnmower Museum in Southport, Lancashire
The museum not only restores machines for their own collection, but also displays vintage garden machinery for closet lawnmower enthusiasts from all over the country.
The Museum attracts visitors from all over the world, with the main attraction being the “Lawnmowers of the Rich and Famous” exhibition, including Lawnmowers owned by
If you are Rich and/or Famous, please help the British Lawnmower Museum in their noble pursuit:
“To extend the appeal of British garden engineering heritage (which is the best in the world) to everyone, please would you contribute an old discarded Lawnmower or any garden tool in any condition from you that will attract many more people to the Museum.
Your donation will be restored to its former glory and placed on view within the new exhibition. ”
“If you are unable to help us in our quest at the moment, please mention this to another famous celebrity like yourself, and tell them about the Museum«s attempt to save our British Heritage, and ask them to save a Lawnmower today.”
Uncle Tweed will naturally donate his old mower as soon as he gets his hands on the John Deere LT 166, a mower with great turning radius, wonderful two petal operation, that is easy to maintain, has great appearance, and features overhead valve/pressure lubrication.
Not to mention the Easy seat adjustment.
