Of course the Likamobile is actually a modern kit-made car - but it adds character to the scene.
The Nissen hut in the background houses the Museums Dairy
The building to the right is to become a reconstructed shop - the contents of which have been left to the Museum
Pitstone Green Museum
Pitstone Green Farm was gifted to the National Trust in 2001 and is now part of the Ashridge Estate. The farm buildings are leased to the Pitstone and Ivinghoe Museum Society as a Heritage Park which holds open days between Easter and September. For details see their web site LinkExternal link

The Museum includes displays relating to the history of the aresa, and a range of workshops for trades such as the wheelwright, the blacksmith, and the cobbler, and an interesting collection of farm implements. There is a model railway showing what railways were like in the days of steam, and a model of a canal wharf and pumping station. One open days there are rides and other exhibits - which may vary from time to time.
