The Llangollen Motor Museum hosted a special guest giving him a tour of the vintage vehicle collection.

Simon Baynes, the Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, visited the Llangollen Motor Museum located in Pentrefelin Works.

The museum houses a large collection of vintage and antique cars and motorcycles as well as numerous items of motoring memorabilia.


During Mr Baynes’ visit, he was provided with a tour of the museum by its owner, Geoff Owen, who talked about the vehicles on display and the conservation work of the museum.

These vehicles included a 1920s Morgan, a 1930s caravan, a 1935 Standard, a BMW Isetta from the 1960s, a 1924 Citroen and a 1926 Vauxhall 1440.

Speaking after the visit, owner of the museum, Geoff Owen, said:“Our classic car museum is not just a collection of vehicles, it's a journey through time that brings back nostalgia and memories.

“We also inspire and educate children.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to Llangollen into the future.”

The museum was established in 1985 by the Broadhurst family at the site of their former sheet metal factory on the outskirts of Llangollen.

It was then purchased by Gwilym Owen in 1997, before it subsequently passed down to his son and current owner, Geoff Owen.

Mr Baynes added: “I would like to thank Geoff and Barbara for providing me with a wonderful tour of the Llangollen Motor Museum.

“Their passion and dedication to conserving and showcasing their fine collection of historic vehicles is evident in the numerous vintage and antique cars and motorcycles on display.

“It is a fantastic treasure-trove and one of Llangollen’s most popular tourist attractions.
