Heritage Transport Museum

Working with the North East Bus Preservation Trust we’re keen to establish a new Transport museum to host a collection of vintage vehicles within the town. Having recently held a number of rallies in the market place, we’re exploring the opportunity to provide a permenant base in the town for upto 100 vintage vehicles.

This will provide a complementary visitor attraction to the Weardale Railway and linking in with railway and transport attractions nearby at Shildon. This museum will not only attract visitors to the town but through outreach and volunteer opportunities will provide skills transfer projects and practical opportunities for both young people and adult learners which could help residents progress into formal engineering qualifications through the work of the College.
