Summer Family Fun

With the summer holidays just around the corner you’ll probably be wondering what to do to entertain the kids. If you can drag them away from Pokémon Go why not take them out to the National Fork Truck Heritage Centre.
Established in 2006, it is the only museum in the world dedicated to the display and history of the Forklift Truck. You’ll learn how the Forklift Truck has evolved over the years as well as how the evolution has affected its safety and design.
There are more than 80 models on display, from machines that can lift half a ton to those that can lift up to 9 tons, as well as astounding information about manufacturers that can be found in the archives there.
One of the most exciting parts of the exhibition is the world’s oldest Forklift Truck, a 1926 Yale Stand-on Counterbalance, not only is it the oldest in the world, it still works! You’ll also find the very first Forklift trucks from many different countries including Britain and Japan.
If you’re interested in this day out or you’d like to find out more you can visit The National Forklift Truck Heritage Centre in Ripley, Derbyshire and it’s located on the Midland Railway – Butterley site. You can call them on 0780 1954 167, you can even contact them to arrange a guided tour, or visit their website.
