Museum Founder and Owner

The Museum can trace its origins back to the time when Steve received his first fire engine model, a gift from his wife Kim on the day he graduated from the Fire School at RAF Catterick in 1983.  Since then the collection has grown at an alarming rate with a growing band of volunteers, a large collection of over 42 specialist crash tenders and fire appliances as well as thousands of other fire-fighting artefacts, there is something for everyone to explore and bring out the kid from within.  With the ability to literally reach out and touch most of our exhibits you are able to imagine what it was like to be a fire-fighter in the past as well as how modern Fire-fighting equipment compares.
