I’ve not heard any news regarding progress on rehousing the collection of rare boats formerly stored at the Motorboat Museum in Wat Tyler Country Park. However, a friend has sent me three pictures of some of the magnificent boats once displayed there.
Closing down the museum was an act of cultural vandalism – something that Basildon’s Conservative Party seem prone to.
Enjoy the pictures – and if you have any more, please send them through.
These pictures were taken by my husband’s uncle Arthur Scoones who is generally known for his excellent photographs of birds mostly taken either at Arundel Wildfowl reserve or his own bird friendly garden. He really enjoyed his visit to the Motorboat Museum and it is a dreadful shame he won’t be able to visit it again.
