Where to go, what to see


This information is gathered from a variety of sources, and I cannot guarantee total accuracy: please phone* the contact number for confirmation before embarking on a long journey.

Event organisers are welcome to contact me to get their events included

Note re autojumbles: I don't include most of them, as there are simply so many. Those listed tend to be the bigger and/or better ones; Kempton Park is one of the largest. The Salt's Farm ones are organised by Elk Engineering and tend to include a fair amount of pre-war spares (according to Elk). Please email me if you know of any others that are particularly worth including here.
