Members of the Livery and their families spent the day at Amberley Museum on Sunday 4 June.

It is over 20 years since the Paviors had a major role in constructing the Museum of Roads and Roadmaking at Amberley Open Air Museum near Arundel in Sussex. Since then the Paviors’ Charity Committee has supported the Museum financially and, in the past, has arranged regular days out for Liverymen and their families to visit the Museum as a group.

However, given the age of the Roads and Roadmaking Museum, the Paviors Company is now engaging with Amberley to consider how to enhance the Paviors’ exhibition, bringing it up-to-date and providing an enhanced visitor experience. The visit on 4 June gave Liverymen and their families a good opportunity to see the current situation at the Museum, the size of the challenge that the Roads and Roadmaking Museum gives, and to consider the possibilities for the future,

As always, the Amberley site, with its many separate and different attractions, provided an excellent family day out. In addition to the usual activities at the Museum, on this particular day the cars in the London to Brighton Classic Car Run were making a stop-over at the Museum prior to the final leg of their rally into Brighton. This gave the opportunity for visitors to view a wide range of classic cars and, for some of the older Paviors, brought back memories of driving experiences in their younger days!
