The WHOTT vision is to establish a museum devoted to the history and development of public and commercial road transport in the region. We are rigorously searching for a site that offers the best potential and is easily accessible. Meanwhile our Leyland Panther saloon acts as our mobile museum, offering a wide range of information about WHOTT as an organisation, as well as staging exhibitions. The Trust has seventeen vehicles in its care, covering the period from 1929 to 1994, including traditional half-cab single and double-deck buses, luxury coaches, minibuses and commercial vehicles. It also has a growing archive facility that can be visited by appointment.

Soon after being established WHOTT was registered as a limited company by guarantee and also obtained charitable status. We have published a Collection Policy that provides a strict approach to what we can and cannot collect. In summary we are interested in anything to do with manufacturing and operating public and commercial road transport throughout the south west. Our period of interest extends from the late nineteenth century to the present day and we are as keen to record and preserve examples of the latest technology as we are faithfully to accommodate those from the past.

Between them the Trustees and Members of WHOTT possess the breadth and depth of knowledge and enthusiasm relevant to public and commercial road transport operation. This is the key to establishing a museum that could, for posterity, combine that knowledge and provide an educational resource for the benefit of students of all ages.

To find out more please browse through our pages, then contact us, or become a Member today. Interest and enthusiasm are all we ask, plus a minimum membership fee of £30.

Why not add WHOTT to your 'Favourites' and visit our website again.

Contact WHOTT by post via our registered office: Kalmia, Church Road, Colaton Raleigh, Devon EX10 0LW, or the Chairman.
