Welcome To The Old Lawnmower Club


The Old Lawnmower Club was formed in 1990 to promote the collection, preservation and display of lawn mowers made from 1830 onwards. We have more than 500 members around the world.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in old lawn mowers. We participate in a number of events throughout the year at museums, garden shows, vintage rallies and steam fairs. You can find out more about what we do on this site.

New Lawn Mower Book

Club member Clive Gravett has published a book about the history of the lawn mower and his own passion for collecting. Two Men Went to Mow  is the story of two men, born 157 years apart, both obsessed with the lawn mower: Edwin Beard Budding (1796-1846) its ingenious inventor, and Clive, whose own interest in the mower and its inventor has led to a museum and charity both dedicated to his hero, not to mention his vast collection of mowers spanning 150 years.

You can order copies of the book direct from Clive by clicking on this link. Buying direct in this way will ensure the maximum amount of support for Clive's Budding Foundation Charity.

Two Men Went to Mow is one of a small, but growing, number of books about mower history and collecting. We've recently revamped the list of these on our website. The page contains links to order the books.
