Our Museum is a collection of vintage tractors that started over 60 years ago and is still growing.
Our ambition here is to have a good and original example of each Nuffield, Leyland and Marshall model.
Most of our tractors are still in their original condition or if not, they have been restored to a very high standard using only genuine parts.
It is a private collection and is not open to the general public but you are very welcome to visit by appointment.
1949 Nuffield M3 Petrol/TVO
Built at Ward End Birmingham in 1949, the 1103rd tractor built by Morris Motors. It was restored by Martin Littlefair in the 1980's and runs and works as good as the day it came out of the factory. It's not the oldest tractor in our collection but it is our oldest Nuffield tractor. Serial number is M3-NT1604 and registration number PPT145. The Morris Commercial engine is based on the ETA type side-valve engine specially developed for tractor use and is 38 horse power.
1968 Nuffield 4/65 - Original Condition
This is a very original example of a 4/65.
Manufactured at the BMC Scotland Plant in January 1968 and first registered in August 1968.
It has spent its entire life here in Lancashire.
1988 MARSHALL 854 - Original Condition
This completely original Marshall 854 has been serviced and maintained by us since it left the Marshall factory in 1988. It was the first of only 18 Marshall 854 tractors ever made and the first of only 54 Marshall tractors to be powered by a Perkins 4 cylinder engine.
It didn't begin it's life here in Brindle, it's first owner was Farmer Arthur Peel in the Yorkshire Dales. His farm was often used for filming for Emmerdale Farm and this tractor featured many times in the 1990's.
1973 Leyland Bray Four 70 – Total restoration project.
Once severely damaged and considered beyond repair but rescued by Will and Dave from the scrapyard. The wreck was delivered to us on a pallet! All tinwork, engine, bearings, pistons etc were available off the shelf from our stores only the gears were made to special order.
