What about a trip to Browns lane Jaguar Heritage Museum before it moves in September
(I hope I got that info right, I'm sure Neil McPherson told me that at the Black Sheep meet - I actually do have a poor memory after recent medical issues, just need to remember where i put the notes to jog my memory
I've got a free calendar during August weekends (will check with the Boss when she gets back from work) and as I've never been to the museum, or Coventry come to think of it, would be well up for a day out in the Midlands
This is from the website -
"OUR HISTORY FIRST HAND
The Jaguar Heritage Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of this remarkable company. Based on the site of the former Browns Lane plant in Coventry - Jaguar's spiritual home - the museum was opened in 1998 and celebrates the history of Jaguar Cars and associated marques including Swallow, SS, Lanchester and Daimler. It contains a selection from Jaguar Heritage's collection of over 120 vehicles dating from 1896 onwards.
The collection began life in the mid-1950s when Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons brought together some of his early models. These can now be seen alongside classic Jaguar racing cars and other iconic models from the past. Images, brochures and factory records from an extensive archive give valuable insights into how these beautiful cars were produced.
Jaguar Heritage works closely with schools and colleges to introduce a new generation to Coventry’s motoring heritage, and hosts educational activities at the museum. It also provides a range of services to owners and enthusiasts including Heritage Certificates, Classic Parts and a shop that offers a wide range of merchandise and technical publications.
VISITING THE MUSEUM
The museum is open during business hours from Monday to Friday and on the last Sunday of every month.
The displays change regularly as vehicles are sometimes loaned out for events or to dealers.

I've just had a good look at the JDHT website, and can see no mention of a move in September, which means I may be wildly mistaken
However, what about Sunday 28th Aug?
Never having been, I bow to those with superior knowledge and contacts, any advice?
