Historic Archives

Our Archive Department remains OPEN throughout the refurbishment of the museum.

Information about the great work we do here with historic archives

The museum’s Archives department holds historic archives, technical documents and many thousands of photographs from the old Leyland Vehicles Group of companies which included vehicles from manufacturers such as Leyland, Albion, AEC, Scammell & Guy.

Technical documents include specification and chassis build sheets for these makes, and these can be made available to vehicle restorers, repairers and authors seeking information.

Our vast collection of period photographs has been reclaimed from glass plate images and after careful digital restoration by our archivists, we now have an ever growing library of pictures on file. These too are available for purchase on-line (click here to see range of photographs available).
