Heritage Open Days – Update

We have thought long and hard whether to continue following the sad death of our Queen but on balance we think that she would have thought that life should continue; so our open days will take place as advertised.

Our Marconi Mk II camera, which was used at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953 will be the centrepiece of our display commemorating the Queen.

In addition to showing Southern, our operational 1960s colour OB truck, we will have two more vehicles on display. One is our newly acquired BBC Radio car, https://becg.org.uk/projects/bbc-radio-car-lt05xan/ and the other is a guest, an ITN links vehicle.
