A 'moving museum' of motoring history will come to Datchet on June 30 when cars, motorbikes and bicycles all built before 1905 relive a key journey by a pioneering driver.

The event commemorates the first recorded journey by a motor car in the UK on July 5, 1895, when pioneering automobilist the Hon. Evelyn Ellis and his passenger Frederick Simms drove from Micheldever near Winchester, to Ellis’s home on Southlea Road, Datchet.

It will be the third reenactment of the journey, ending with a veteran vehicle display and family fun day on Datchet Green.

The veteran vehicles taking part will be displayed on the village green, alongside exhibits of penny-farthings and other historic bicycles.

The Windsor Town Crier will be announcing the arrival of the vehicles which are due to reach Datchet from about 11am, continuing throughout the afternoon.

There will also be live entertainment from ukulele and jazz bands and Datchet Border Morris dancers. Food and drink will be available from the W.I. Hall, The Bridge café, The Royal Stag pub and other local venues.

The aim is to bring to life the Victorian era when Evelyn Ellis made that first recorded journey. Entrants – and spectators – are invited to dress in period costumes and displays about Datchet’s motoring history and Victorian Datchet will set the scene in the W.I. Hall.
