Cae Dai Museum
A museum of the 1950s, with a small number of cars and other vehicles on display.
Lawnt, Denbigh, LL16 4SU.
Early 1990s - present.
Despite losing virtually all the collection in a fire in 2009, the Cae Dai Museum has been rebuilt to give the visitor a real flavour of life in England and Wales during the 1950s and 60s.
The cars in the collection include a Beardmore Taxi, a Ford Anglia, an Austin A30, and a Morris Cowley. The Museum also has the Austin Loadstar lorry used in the Great Train Robbery to carry the £2.6m haul from the train.
The Museum was founded by Sparrow Harrison MBE – boxer, jazz musician, and co-founder of the British Stammering Association. It is part of the Cai Dai Trust, a small charity giving support to adults from the local community who have difficulties stemming from drugs, alcohol, and mental illness.
