The National Motor Museum Trust (NMMT) at Beaulieu hosts the UK’s foremost collection relating to the history of the leisure travel movement, the Caravan and Motorhome Club (CAMC) Collection, under the terms of a long-term partnership agreement.
‘Homes on Wheels’ is a project which aims to bring the forgotten story of Winchester resident Bertram Hutchings (1886-1967), and his nationally significant caravan building business, back to the City and across Hampshire in Summer 2023.
In 2015 the CAMC Collection, hosted at the NMMT, Beaulieu, acquired over 1,500 items including photographs, ephemera and journals, relating to the business of Hutchings of Winchester Ltd. (later Winchester Caravans). The collection has since been catalogued, digitised and researched in detail by volunteers at the National Motor Museum Trust. To date, only a handful of items from the Collection have been shared publicly for the purpose of research and gleaning more information on the collection.
HAT awarded £2529 for the exhibition element of a wider project. There will be a number of local exhibitions (including at Hampshire Record Office), various ‘pop ups’ and at the Clubfest 2023 in Northamptonshire in May
