Borgward Owners, Family and Friends
After such a fantastic turnout and enthusiasm shown for the 1st UK Borgward Drivers Club meeting we thought we needed to aim higher and have decided to hold the meeting at two venues close together.
Arundel town is small market town with a major bridging point over the River Arun and it was the lowest road bridge until 1908. Arundel Castle, the second largest in England, home to the Duke of Norfolk, was built by the Normans to protect that vulnerable fairly wooded plain to the north of the valley through the South Downs. The town later grew up on the slope below the castle to the south.
Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre is set in a 36 acre site in the South Downs National Park.
Dedicated to the
industrial heritage of the South East, exhibits include a narrow-gauge
railway and bus service (both provide free nostalgic travel around the
site), Connected Earth Telecommunications Hall, Milne Electricity Hall,
Printing Workshop and much more.
