Caravan Log Books

A recent addition to the Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection are ten Log Books detailing the caravan holidays and rallies enjoyed by the Goodey family of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Dating from 1951 to 1965 these are charming accounts of Club life in the 1950s and 1960s.

The 1952 log book features a fascinating report on a day trip to Beaulieu on Friday 11 April. Palace House was first opened to the public by Edward, Lord Montagu only four days earlier on Tuesday 8 April 1952. This makes the Goodey’s some of the earliest public visitors to Beaulieu, and they noted in their log that the display of cars 'is worth seeing'.

The Goodey's were visiting the New Forest on The Caravan Club's Southern and South Western Centres Easter Rally held 10 - 16 April 1952. Attended by 103 members the rally included a full programme of local excursions and fun events.
