World War Two 

The second part of the collection concentrates on World War Two and represents one of the largest collections in private ownership, with over 3000 items on permanent display. 

Now 7O years after the war ended, many have forgotten the supreme sacrifice that so many had to make. This collection is in memory of them all. The collection also contains many rare exhibits from the First World War trenches and we provide a guided tour through the period. Groups and individuals are very welcome to take a 'walk in the past'.
 
The Collection is open by appointment only, but every effort will be made to facilitate small groups or individuals. The Collection is open to visitors free of charge, but contributions are gratefully accepted in aid of Cancer Research UK.
