Rushden Historical Transport society was formed in 1976 when its
founder Mr Richard Woodcock decided to place an advert in the local
press with the intention of attracting people interested in transport to
a meeting to be held at the Rose and Crown public house in
Rushden's High Street.
The meeting was attended by 8 people who formed the society.
Today RHTS owns and runs Rushden Transport Museum, has over 650 members and organizes one of the biggest
Transport Rallies and County Shows in the area attracting over 25000 people to Rushden
during the annual 3 day event.
