Lake­land vis­its up

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

More than 500,000 vis­i­tors have passed through the doors of the Lake­land Mo­tor Mu­seum in Back­bar­row, near the south­ern tip of Win­der­mere. It re­lo­cated to its cur­rent home from Holker Hall in May 2010, tripling the amount of ex­hi­bi­tion space, and pro­vid­ing room to dra­mat­i­cally ex­pand its col­lec­tion.

Man­ager Chris Lowe, says: ‘It’s a land­mark fig­ure for us and re­ally shows that her­itage tourism is mak­ing a big con­tri­bu­tion to the tourism sec­tor.

‘It’s not just car en­thu­si­asts we’re see­ing, but also plenty of cou­ples and young fam­i­lies who want to take a look at some unique mo­tor­ing ma­chines they won’t see in their day-to-day lives.’
