Wagoners' Museum at Sledmere House

Wagoners' Museum at Sledmere House

Details

This little museum, which is in the entrance area to Sledmere House, tells the story of the Wagoners' Special Reserve with photographs, papers, memorabilia and a medal collection. Sir Mark Sykes' uniform is also on display.

The Wagoners' Special Reserve was the brainchild of Sir Mark Sykes 6th Baronet and these men became some of the first to go abroad in the First World War, driving the horse drawn wagons with supplies of food, fodder and ammunition for the frontline.

The museum is of interest to all. As far as we know this is the only museum devoted to a Special Reserve. It is now run by a Charitable Trust which relies on voluntary contributions. If you would like to help our work with a donation please get in touch with the Curator.
