The aim of the WSR Preserve and Protect fund is to provide year round covered space for some of our most valuable and valued heritage carriages. At the moment we don't have enough covered storage space to protect our carriages. This is especially important for wooden bodied vehicles, like our Hawksworth designed Taunton Engineers Inspection Saloon.

There are several possible ways of achieving covered storage and the Trustees are exploring a number of options, including the possibilities of building a new shed or re-locating an existing heritage shed from the national network onto the WSR. This will take time and be subject to external factors. The Trustees have started raising the funds now, so that they will be able to take advantage of any opportunities that arise.
