On yer bike - cycling exhibition
Over the summer Leith Hill Place has been home to a pop-up display about cycling featuring historic information, cycling memorabilia and family activities. Come and visit this August bank holiday weekend before the cycling exhibition closes to make way for our autumn exhibitions.
Working with local companies, this temporary exhibition explores the history of cycling in the Dorking and Leith Hill area and gives visitors a chance to share their experiences on cycling on the hill.
The main text from the exhibition, alongside a slideshow if images, was assembled by Dorking Museum, and has been reproduced with their kind permission.
Local cycling shop 'Head for the Hills' in Dorking have loaned some cycling items for display including a jersey signed by Bradley Wiggins.
This pop-up exhibition will be open every Friday to Sunday until 25 August, plus Bank Holiday Monday 26 August, 11am-5pm. Free for National Trust members, admission charges for non-members apply.
