Scammell, as with any famous marque in road transport history, has a dedicated following of enthusiasts, many of whom have restored and drive Scammell lorries. The Scammell Register is the organisation for anyone who owns, or has an inPioneerterest in, this famous marque.

Our website is regularly updated with news items, events and other information (last update 16 /07/2016) and contains a range of information on Scammell and the Register.

Having evolved from an idea that the founder, Bill Bromidge, had at the Great Dorset Steam Fair way back in 1983, The Scammell Register has a long and interesting history.

Although the Scammell works closed in 1988, the Register continues to go from strength to strength adopting the by-line

Scammell Lorries

The history of Scammell Lorries Limited begins in 1922, with the move from Fashion Street to Tolpits Lane in Watford, where, in the mid 1920s, this Shell Six Wheeler is pictured.

In 2007, eighty five years later, ten Scammell Register Members and their lorries returned to Watford and Tolpits Lane, the site of the Scammell works, to ensure the legend which is Scammell lives on.

In 2008, to commemorate the passing of 20 years since the closure of the works and to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Scammell Register, eleven Members and their lorries repeated the run to Tolpits Lane. Some are pictured below, alongside the blue railings - all that remains of the Scammell works.

2008 was a big year for the Register, as we celebrated our 25th Anniversary. We held a number of celebratory events during the year, the main one being at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Footage of this event is included in the new DVD "Twenty Years on - The Scammells at Dorset."

We would appreciate any comments on, or suggestions, or photos for the website.
