National Forktruck Heritage Centre



The National Fork Truck Heritage Centre.


It is the only museum in the world that is dedicated to the display and history of the forklift truck. The Centre was established in 2006 to record and explain how forklift trucks have evolved over the years and in particular how this has affected the machines safety and design. Some eighty plus trucks are held at this time and include machines that can lift from as little as half a ton to others that can lift up to nine tons in weight. The archives hold information on no fewer than 170 manufacturers worldwide from 1917 to date and hold in excess of half a million references relating to the materials handling industry.
