MGA Day South West

On Sunday 12 June we shall be joining the South West Centre Picnic at Haynes Motor Museum, Sparkbrook, Yeovil BA22 7LH

Alan Diamond is the SW Centre organizer and Barry Warner will liaise with him on behalf of the MGA Register. Details of opening times and entry charges will be published on this page nearer the time. 

It was John Haynes’ love of motoring and business which formed the essence of the hugely successful Haynes Publishing Group. A collector of cars and most things related to them, John’s ambition to create his own Museum was perhaps inevitable.

The home for John’s ever-increasing collection is the remains of a Second World War American munitions dump in Sparkford, Somerset. The site was ideal; not only would the collection be available to the public in one place but, by gaining the status of a UK independent charitable trust, its future would be also protected. Housed within 17 exhibition areas, the Museum’s vast Collection of veteran, vintage and classic cars and bikes offers a fascinating window into motoring history.

The Museum was opened on 10 July 1985 by the then Land Speed Record holder Richard Noble OBE.

This is the “Red Room” where you will find an MGA 1600, somewhere!
