The Nevington War Museum is a culmination of many years of research, wild imagination and the ability to see things through the eye of an adult and the enthusiasiam of a child.
Nevington is a village in the south of England. Its history is as shrouded as the mists of time and its where abouts obliterated by the Fog of War. Nevington is the Valhalla of fighting equipment of the first half of the Twentieth Century. The weapons and vehicles housed in the Museum found their way there via a multitude of contorted paths. Each vehicle and weapons journey to the Nevington Museum is unique. During the dark days of war and in peacetime secrecy, items were donated, often smuggled, to the museum by their users at a risk to their own lives.
The Village itself is located near a deep-water harbor and not too far from a large partially forested plain. To get there one must take the train south, a bus west and finally trek into the forests and depending on your mood, you can find it virtually anywhere.
The Museum specialises in the equipment listed on the right, but generally collects anything as it becomes available.
Please enjoy your Visit to the Museum.
