Commentary
A museum containing more than 100 major exhibits, most of which are cars dating from the 1920s onwards.

Established by the late Richard and Hasell Atwell (née Wilson), the collection began with the purchase of a 1937 Buick Albermarle.  This was followed by a 1934 Vauxhall 14/6 and a 1931 Singer Junior; all of these cars are still on display.
