Ransomes first Motor Mower used at Cadbury's Sports Ground

This is probably the most famous Motor Mower in the World! Rarely seen in public,due to its size.It was exhibited by Ransomes on their Stand at The Birmingham Motor Show in 1901,The Cadbury Bros saw it, liked it, and bought it for their Sports Ground in Bournville. In 1923 it was part exchanged for a T Green & Son 42 inch Machine.The Ransomes was re-furnished and bought by Talbot's for their sports ground, in the late 1930's it was mothballed between 2 walls and forgotten about,until it was found again in the late 1980's,when it was given to us,The Hall & Duck Trust
