NECPWA North Classic Car Event

Overview

Overview

NECPWA North is the home of the Tyneside and Durham Branches of the North of England Classic and Pre War Automobiles Motoring Club. (originally founded as and formerly known to everyone as the North East Club for Pre War Austins.) The North's Foremost Classic Motoring Club. The Club looks to encourage the regular use of, and accepts all makes and types of vehicles, not only cars and motorcycles. We have members who own different makes (and types) of vehicle (sometimes more than 1). Membership is open to any enthusiast of old motor vehicles however it is not necessary to be a vehicle owner to join the club though attendance at Club organised classic 'rallies' is generally restricted to vehicles produced over 18 years ago. [NB each event, and local branch, has its own entry rules]. There is a splendid park, lake with geese, etc, pub and miniature railway nearby alongside the museum itself. We need to get the display in place for 10 to 10.30 am. before the public are allowed in. Please be no later, as museum staff control the gates which will be closed and locked until 4.00 p.m. This is a ' Season Ticket' event, to buy one contact rallynecpwanorth.org or click the link: e mail icon Dogs on leaders only. However NO Smoking, Vaping or gas stoves are allowed.

Access information

All visitors to Woodhorn will find a visit rewarding with almost all of the buildings open to the public fully accessible: only one or two places in the old colliery buildings are a little more challenging.

Road directions

Woodhorn is just off the A189 Coastal Route east of Ashington, Northumberland.  

It’s only 25 minutes from Newcastle in the south and Alnwick in the north. It is also just off the C1 National and Coast & Castles cycle routes.

If you are planning to use a sat nav, take care! Woodhorn’s postcode will take you to the wrong location, so please watch out for the brown and white signs as you get close and then Woodhorn’s large, bright entrance banners.
