Museum of Power

On Sunday 27th May a number of members attended the Breakfast Meet at Museum of Power at Langford, Nr. Hatfield Peveral for our first visit to this site since 2008! Checking back on my photos of the last visit in 2008, I was surprised to see that the event was in the same field as we were at on this Sunday. My recollection was that we were in a much smaller area closer to the museum. Having attended various other breakfast meetings throughout Essex, it was refreshing to go to a site that caters for so many cars. As we entered the site, there were a number of mobile catering establishments dotted around the field but the members chose to use museum’s cafeteria. This is manned by volunteers and the money from visits and catering goes towards the upkeep of the museum.
Many cars participated in the event which is held on the last Sunday of the month, the next meeting being 24th June. Although there were a number of ‘ordinary cars’ parked in the field, there were also, a number of classic’s, American and interesting cars. There was a full selection of Fords of the 70’s and 80’s in the form of a Ford Cosworth, Ford Capri 280, Ford Escort Mexico & a couple of Ford Escort RS2000’s.

Also on display where a couple of Ford Mustang’s with special paintwork undertaken by a local Chelmsford company called Essex Dip Hydrographics. See website:

Here are some of the members cars that displayed at this months breakfast meet. From the top, Claire Galbois-Alcaix’s 5L XK Coupe, Peter Shaw’s Mark II, Graham Cook’s XK8, Chris White’s E-Type Convertible, Ray Harris’s XK Convertible, David Ogg’s Suffolk SS100 and finally, Ray Holder’s XJS V12.

If the weather is good and you want an early breakfast on a Sunday morning while viewing the attending participants, then this is a worthy attraction to visit. See you next month, weather permitting!
