That’s a Wrap

The LVT-4 recovered from under 30ft of mud last year has gone into hibernation for winter, although restoration work continues ahead of the 75th anniversary of the Crowland floods

To protect it from the elements during the cold and wet winter months, the Crowland Buffalo has been wrapped in a protective coat of plastic sheeting.

Chairman of the Crowland Buffalo LVT Association (CBLA), Daniel Abbott, said the amphibious vehicle would remain like that until the team could get a temporary, roofed fixture erected over it.

“I built a timber frame around it for now and we’ve wrapped it in plastic sheeting, but our goal is to try and get some sort of roof over it to allow guests to come to view it and so we can work on it,” he said.

“Unfortunately, we won’t be able to open it up for viewing without an appointment because it’s located in the yard of a business, but if interested parties get in touch, we’ll do our best to accommodate them.”
