COTSWOLD MOTORING MUSEUM


Cotswold Motoring Museum is located in the Old Mill at Bourton-on-the-Water.  It was founded in 1978 by a private collector, Mike Cavanagh, who had amassed a substantial collection while living in South Africa over 20 years.  He began with a 1929 Brooklands Riley that he bought for £30 in 1959 and went from there, including signs and memorabilia.  He shipped his entire collection to Britain when returning home, found the Old Mill disused and for sale and established the museum.  Mike retired in 1999 and the museum was sold.  It now includes some 40 cars, several motorbikes, as a large collection of toys, an enormous amount of motoring memorabilia and even a couple of caravans.
