In case you missed it, Britain’s first vacuum cleaner museum is now open in Nottinghamshire.

Boasting dozens of models dating back to 1919, the museum is part of the private collection of one James Brown. Mr. Brown is a 30 year old ex caretaker and has 120 cleaners in his own collection. His party trick is to identify each cleaner based purely on the noise it makes.  Mr. Brown is not married.

And the pride of his collection are two gold-plated American-made Kirby ‘Ultimate G’ vacuum cleaners that he values at £2,500 each.

If you are ever in Nottinghamshire the museum is in Eastwood, is open from Monday to Saturday and entry is free.
