About the Fir Park Transport Museum Show June
Lincoln, in the East Midlands, is the birthplace of Charlotte Angas Scott (1858 – 1931). She was an influential British mathematician specializing in the study of specific algebraic curves of degree higher than two, whatever that means. It should be noted that while on her way to earning her doctorate at Cambridge, she risked being thrown into a special prison called the Spinning House reserved for suspected “ladies of the evening” for the “crime” of being an unaccompanied woman. Fortunately, no math skills are required to attend the Fir Park Transport Museum Show, held in June about 15 miles northeast of Lincoln in Market Rasen.
Unaccompanied women are quite welcome as are steam and classic car enthusiasts at this free two-day weekend show hosted by the Fir Park Transport Museum. The venue is the open-air grounds of Fir Park Farm.
Exactly what will be on display is unknown at this time, but past shows have featured helicopter, aircraft, and paramotor displays as well as model aircraft displays, trucks, tractors, and steam rollers. There will also be stationary engines, motorcycles and trade stands for collectors and hobbyists to indulge their interests. There may even be a dog show. Food and drink will be available.
Fir Park Transport Museum
Now over 10 years old, The Fir Park Transport Museum describes themselves as a “dedicated team of enthusiasts trying to save old vehicles, oddities, and anything different.” They are always looking to add to their already large collection of vehicles and for new projects. They claim they “will take on anything”.
Entry To The Event
There is no charge for this event and the show will start in the late morning and run until late afternoon. Please check back with updated information as the June event approaches. Those arriving or leaving by small aircraft are advised to avoid flying over houses to the east of the airfield.
Somewhere to Stay in Lincolnshire
With the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB just to the east, campers and caravaners will find many campsites to spend a night or even a week. Two of the closest ones to the Fir Park Transport Museum are the Walesby Woodlands Caravan Park and The Camping and Caravan Park near the Market Rasen Racecourse. There are at least four hotels in Market Rasen and many more that dot the surrounding landscape.
Other Things To Do Around Market Rasen
Tourists will want to see Lincoln attractions like The Collection, a “purpose-built” museum for archaeological finds and collections of artworks. Visitors can also visit the Lincoln Guildhall, the meeting place of the Lincoln City Council from medieval times to the present. A free guided tour is offered.
The Fir Park Transport Museum June Show is an open-air event on a grass and dirt field so wheelchair users may be affected by rough terrain and any consequences of bad weather. Parking is free and well-behaved dogs whose owners pick up after them are welcome. Unaccompanied ladies can rest easy knowing that The Spinning House was demolished in 1901 and replaced by a police station.
