Another Museum Burns

Dec 3rd, 2009 | By

Another museum, the Cae Dai 1950’s Motor Museum in Lawnt outside Denbigh in North Wales has been badly damaged by fire. The fire broke out on Tuesday night and has destroyed many of the vehicles including the lorry that was used to take the mail sacks away from the Great Train Robbery in 1963. Now that the roof has caved in, it is not sure if anything can be saved from the collection. But being a 1950’s museum, there was more than the odd vehicle. There were examples of food and everyday items from the time including ration books (I still have mine somewhere about the place) and mock-ups of what kitchens were like at the time.
