VIDEO: THE historic Walton Hall Cycle Museum in Warrington has a new home.

With restoration works currently ongoing at Walton Hall & Gardens on bringing the former Victorian greenhouses back into life, museum curator Paul Adams has had to move his collection to the former laundry premises next to the hall.

He has a wide variety of bicycles in all shapes and sizes which form his collection.

Paul, aged 75, admits his bicycle collection is an obsession which started in his childhood when he developed an interest in vintage cars – before moving on to bicycles which were “more affordable!”

“I’ve been after some of these bikes for more than 10 years and I am delighted they are now part of the collection,” he said.

Paul, who runs the Cycle Museum on a voluntary basis, says obsession for old bicycles has become a “disease” and now he has rteturned to his also returned to his first passion with a new “toy” – a Vintage Austin car.

The museum is open most weekends from 11am-4pm and admission is free.
