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.

In addition we display other horticultural tools for cultivation, pruning and irrigation. Please click on our social links below to view our weekly Objects throughout 2022.
