Avro Heritage Museum – Woodford 8th March 2019.
Returning back to one of my local airfields that I used to visit as a youth on a very regular basis made me very sad to see the production hall had been replaced by housing . Over all those years I had seen new Vulcans, Avro 748’s, Andover’s, Shackleton AEW2 & Victor K2 upgrades , Nimrod’s , BAe ATP and 146’s come off the production line .
I was very impressed with my first visit to the Museum and the very friendly staff and guides made it all a good experience that I will repeat when next in the area. I have added a list of exhibits I pictured on my visit. A good Café is also open on the 1st floor.
