The museum is dedicated to Edwin Beard Budding (1795 -1846), inventor of the Lawn Mower in 1830.

Our collection of lawn mowers date from the 1860’s to the 1980’s and include many rare & some unique machines.

Our curator Clive Gravett is one of the worlds leading experts on lawn mower history.

In addition we display other horticultural tools for cultivation, pruning and irrigation.
