Finding us

The Broadcast Engineering Museum (BEM) is located at our premises in Hemswell Cliff, Gainsborough. This is the old RAF Hemswell site – in fact we are located not far from the Hemswell Antiques Centres.

Please note that we’re not open every day, so check with us first.

By Road

Our address is:
Broadcast Engineering Museum
41 Capper Avenue,
Gainsborough
DN21 5XS.

Hemswell Cliff is on the A631 road from Gainsborough to the A15 at Caenby Corner.

When you enter the village, you need the turning for Capper Avenue which is signposted “Primary School”. Do not use the main Antiques Centres entrance as there is no easy way through to our site. Follow Capper Avenue past the green area and play park on your left, then turn left just in front of the bungalow (the old NAAFI!). Follow the road around the back of our building and into the car park at the front.

Here is a map which should help you. If you can use “What Three Words”, our location is: seagulls.added.obtain

By Bus

There is a service (Stagecoach number 103) which runs from Lincoln via Hemswell Cliff then Kirton in Lindsey finishing at Scunthorpe. It stops near the Post Office on the main road, just opposite Gibson Road (the main entrance to the Antiques Centres). You can walk from there (see map above – the Post Office is in the bottom left corner).

By Train

The closest railway station to us is Gainsborough, however there is no bus service from Gainsborough to Hemswell Cliff, so you would be better using Scunthorpe or Lincoln stations then getting the 103 bus as above or a taxi.
