The Norman Cycles Club is based at the Willesborough Windmill in Ashford Kent, home town to the Norman factory. The motorcycles are rare and we are the only club dedicated to keeping them on the road. Many of the former factory buildings still stand in Beaver Road, the new road outside of the former factory site has been named Norman Road. A museum is located in the windmills barn, this features a collection of cycles and mopeds, and a large wall display. The mill is open 14.00 to 17.00 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays from late March to late September. The club was formed early in 2001, by the end of 2001 had sixty two members including Charles Norman's widow and sons who have now both accepted the role of Joint Honorary Presidents. We have a number of very active members both in the UK and worldwide. The membership is diverse with members of the Norman family, former employees, cycle enthusiasts, tricycle owners, moped owners, trials competition people and motorcycle owners.
We hold our annual Norman Day at the Willesborough Windmill in Ashford, on the second Sunday in May and a second Club Day in September.
