  • This used to be a fantastic business as Stanleys for lawnmower purchase and repair although repairs were always backed up and then they stopped lawnmower sales and repairs and believe they may have recently started it up again.. Also do safes and key cutting etc but the museum although obviously unique and has taken years to set up and perfect is really more of the owners pet project so to speak and think the Stanley's business really subsidises it. It's not a money spinner have never seen anyone go in it and to be fair how many people are really interested in vintage lawnmowers I mean I can't think that lawnmower enthusiasts are in the thousands even like birdwatching or model train set enthusiasts but it might give some interesting facts like I believe the owner gave Charles and Diana a lawnmower as a wedding gift! If true I suppose that's a cool little fact!!
  • Wonderful service with very helpful staff. I am delighted I have found you and I now have someone to make/source parts for my Grandfather's 1948 Gen Atco mower!
  • A novel and intriguing place for a visit. Contributions from celebrities make for extra curiosity.
  • Nice little gem.
  • Very interesting place!
