Hmmmm... Interesting. I feel a club visit to the Haynes Museum coming on...
The museum fills several huge tin sheds with literally hundreds of cars from 1890s to 2017 but it's a long way away for most people down near the A303 at Sparkford and it's expensive. I only saw three Daimlers, a model for a child that had an oil leak under it so it must have a small engine, a 1919 light Phaeton and a red SP250.
You need to be interested in classic cars generally as there is a serious shortage of club cars.
There's a meeting in the car park for owners on the first Sunday of a month 8.30am for owners to chat, which appeals to supercar owners. However, April 1 is Easter Sunday so I'm not sure if anybody will be there.
I met Ian Russell with his silver SP250 there in 2016 as he lives very close.

Only 3? Difficult to see how they can manage to have so few!
(Sorry we're off topic now, but I'm always on the look out for new and interesting venues. Maybe Bicester heritage is a better bet.)

You could add Haynes International Motor Museum in your Links section as it has a few Daimlers http://www.haynesmotormuseum.com/

It's a massive museum including models and advertising panels and it's a pity it hasn't got more Daimlers. I didn't see any Lanchesters or BSAs but I could have missed them.
Thanks a lot John. I have added this link to my website.
