Last updated April 2015.

 

Following last year’s successful event at the Milton Keynes Museum, we are again holding our main vehicle display (Telephone & Post Office Vehicle Gathering) at this attractive venue on Sunday 26th April 2015.  Vehicle owners are invited to bring a GPO/Post Office/BT/Royal Mail vehicle or motor cycle(s) for display at this event at the museum.   The public hours will be from 11am to 4pm giving vehicle owners sufficient time to get their vehicles to the museum and ready for display by 11am.  The intention is to follow the format we used last year with a parade of motor-cycles and vehicles around the site, and a presentation of the Post Office Trophy for the best vehicle restoration, judged by the preservationists bringing their vehicles.  Milton Keynes Museum is located in Wolverton and is easily accessible from the A5 trunk road. 

 

The Milton Keynes Museum entrance is in McDonnell Drive, MK12 5EL.  The Museum lies near the A5 trunk road which skirts the edge of Central Milton Keynes and is easy to find.

 

Travelling from the Midlands by road, the A5 runs parallel to the M1, but diverges near Northampton. From the M1, turn off at Junction 15, turning right along the A508 which passes through Roade. Follow this road for about 8 miles until reaching a rounabout at the junction with the A5. Turn immediately left along this dual carriageway; then turn off at the first junction to the roundabout and take the first exit. Turn right at the next roundabout and follow the museum signs to McConnell Drive which is on the left.

 

From the South either follow the A5 from Junction 9 of the M1 passing through Dunstable and Hockliffe, or travel to Junction 14. From Junction 9 and after passing through Hockliffe keep on the A5, over another roundabout until reaching a dual carriageway section. Continue along the dual carriageway to the next roundabout and take the third exit which is still the A5 dual carriageway. Take the 4th turning on the left, up the slip road to the roundabout and take the 4th exit and follow the Museum signs to McConnell Drive.

 

From the M1 turn off at Junction 14 and follow the signs to Central Milton Keynes along the A509 Portway. Follow this road to passing over four roundabouts, then turn right at the fifth along V8 Marlborough Street. Pass over one roundabout and turn left onto the A422 H3 Monks Way. Follow this road to the A5; take the 5th exit and follow the Museum signs to McConnell Drive.

 

From the west approach via the A422 from Buckingham to the Old Stratford roundabout on the A5 taking the third exit onto the dual carriageway; taking the first exit to the roundabout and turning immediately left. Follow the museum signs to McConnell Drive.

 

From the east approach via the A421 or A422. When approaching via the A421, which is Standing Way, travel into Milton Keynes. Turn right at the second of two roundabouts, which are close together, along the B4034 or V8 Marlborough Street. Travel northward until reaching the A422 or H3 Monks Way and turn left at this roundabout. Follow this road to the A5; take the 5th exit and follow the Museum signs to McConnell Drive.
