    I can remember visiting this in the mid 80's as a kid it was located in the mine were the bouncing bombs etc were stored and had one of the only known surviving LRDG Chevy wagons left(it had been uncovered in Lybia?. Anyone know what happened to both the museum and and Chevy?

  3. Where was it? I kinda like underground places :oops:
     
  4. Used to love that place - I might still have a guidebook at my mum and dad's.

    Closed down a long time ago - early 1990s ISTR.

    Near Rhyl IIRC mind you wouldn't mind a snoop on the old boat moored up there surprised it's not been turned into a floating hostel for eastern euro workers yet
     
  6. Hi,

    The chev. is now in the IWM, London, (where it can't go rusty, unlike in the underground museum).

    That indeed is the place used to have a Sherman parked up at the entrance
     
  8. "What's the "boat" at Mostyn? When I lived in Colwyn Bay and went by train to Chester, I recall seeing a small ex-RN vessel moored up in a creek somewhere near Flint... This was back in the 1970's.

  10. Hi,

    It was called The Grange Cavern Military Museum.

    The link is to a ebsite with a copy of their old flyer, with a map to get there at the bottom, although I think the A55 is not in the same place.
