CLOVERLANDS MODEL CAR MUSEUM WILL RE-OPENING JUNE 2022 IN ITS NEW HOME AT WELSHPOOL & LLANFAIR RAILWAY

Cloverlands Model Car Museum is the largest public collection of model cars in Wales:10 collections and over 5000 exhibits. Pictures and memorabilia. Suitable for car clubs, and schools. Knowledgeable guides to make your visit memorable. Photography permitted.

Marques include Bugatti, Bentley, Mercedes and Rolls-Royce cars together with Grand Prix and World Land Speed Record breakers, buses, trams and vans of every description. Two superstar models over three feet long reign over their lesser subjects. One is a Singer Le Mans which is a replica of a car that Miss Rogers owned and drove for forty years until 1998. The second, Madame Cloette, was probably the forerunner of Brum – a feisty car hero of children’s TV in the Nineties.

More than just model cars – Cloverlands is a sublime piece of motoring social history, lovingly compiled by an early motorist. This lifetime’s collection by one lady motorist assembled as motoring heritage par excellence, since her father gave her two model cars for a birthday present. Another nine collections some 2000 items have been added. Miss Rogers not only collected, but built and commissioned models large and small. She visited Le Mans and the German Nurburgring and was a member of the Veteran Sports Car Club for many years.
