The Muckleburgh Collection, Norfolk

Set on the picturesque North Norfolk coast at Weybourne near the seaside town of Sheringham, the Muckleburgh Collection, although not strictly an aviation museum, has plenty to keep the enthusiast occupied.

History
Situated on Muckleburgh Hill at the foot of the Weybourne Military Camp, the musuem was first opened in 1988 by Berry and Michael Savory. The Weybourne Camp was initially an Army coastal defence base during the First World War and then became an anti-aircraft artillery base until 1958. The RAF still has a radar station within the area and Weybourne is also home to a small civil airfield.

The museum is centered around the original NAAFI building which underwent several years of restoration. Opposite the main entrance is the original storage compound which remains virtually as it was in 1948 and is now used as workshops.

What to see
The heart of the collection is the120 tanks, vehicles and guns from around the globe - some of the tanks are used in regular 'tank drives' on the site which can be watched from the viewing area.

For the aviation enthusiast there is a small collection of RFC items, a Bae Harrier GR3, Gloster Meteor NF11, Bristol Bloodhound and Rapier missiles, RAF Photo Reconnaissance exhibition, a WWII V1 'Doodlebug' and a huge collection of scale models.

The North Norfolk coast is also home to the 'Poppy Line' or North Norfolk Coast steam railway which runs between the preserved station at Sheringham to Holt, with a stop at Weybourne.
