Woodford-Avro Heritage Museum

Post by castle man » Mon Dec 05, 2016 10:11 pm

This former aircraft manufacturer facility has been quiet on the discussion front for some time, so I'll give you
all a quick update...

Sadly all the main north west assembly sheds are gone with new housing now well & truly established where they stood.
But on the south east side the 5 final hangars still stand awiting their fate (sometime in 2017).

However a new "Shining Light" has been established in the last two years.."The Avro Heritage Museum" based in the former
fire station and thanks to BAE systems completely rebuilt to a cutting edge facility. With just one year under our belts we've
have had over 10,000 visitors, with the initial draw of a timeline of pictures & models in the main viewing hall & XM602s saved cockpit experience allowing the public to sample Vulcan crew conditions.

Now as I write we have restored XM603 back to her original 1963 delivered livery in Anti Flash white & secured more cockpit examples..Canberra-Lancaster-Anson-Nimrod & VC10.

Please make an effort to visit us it won't dissapoint.
