Cadwell Park's past on display at local museum

Monday, July 14 2014

Cadwell Park's 80-year history is being celebrated by nearby Louth Museum, with a special exhibition dedicated to the Lincolnshire track opening this week.

Local racing legend Neil Tuxworth will open the exhibition at 10:00am this Wednesday (16 July), which will run until 6 September. Visitors will have the opportunity to view unique photographs, trophies, programmes, posters and other memorabilia from the circuit.

The exhibition will trace Cadwell Park's history from its beginnings and early association with the Louth and District Motorcycle Club to the present day. Visitors can find out about its evolution and links with Murray Walker and even one of the Great Train Robbers!

The venue's legendary reputation amongst the motorcycle community will be marked with many exhibits, including a Honda 4RC173 superbike.

Cadwell Park's Elaine Nutbrown said: "Working with colleague Angela Barker, we prepared 20 history boards for the museum exhibition and collated a lot of memorabilia including posters, programmes and photos. This involved a trip to the Lincoln Archives to get background information on Cadwell Vale, which dates back to the early 1800s."

Louth Museum is located at 4 Broadbank, LN11 0EQ and is open 10:00am to 4:00pm Wednesday to Saturday. Entry costs £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for children. For more information visit www.louthmuseum.org

The exhibition opens just three weeks before Cadwell Park's own anniversary celebrations on 3 August, which will include celebrity riders, famous bikes, a full race programme, displays and live music. Entry for this event is available from £14, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
