This Aviation Museum has a unique collection of British aircraft from the "golden age" of British aircraft manufacture. From the end of WWII until the 1970's British aircraft designers produced some of the most innovative and advanced aircraft of the day. From post war to cold war, this museum clearly shows that timeline in aviation terms.

In this collection there are examples from the major manufacturers of this period.

Amongst the list are classic names, Avro, Hawker, Gloster, de Havilland, English Electric, Blackburn, Percival.


Planning consent for the replacement of our old chicken sheds with a new modern construction was granted by Mole Valley District Council on the 3rd of December 2014. Demolition work to remove the unsafe building began in January 2015.

Please note the museum is now closed until later in the year when we will re-open the museum housed in a new building.

The museum site is behind the builders fence and no access (except for regular condition checks on the airframes) is allowed. As this implies we cannot accomodate ANY access to the airframes for non museum staff, although this is very frustrating for both us and the many requests we've received for access, there is little we can do about it until the site is returned to our control by the construction company. We can only apologise and hope that the oustanding issue (see News) is resolved rapidly and we can get on with construction.

We don't have a time when we expect to open yet. It will probably be in early summer, but it'll become clearer the nearer we get to opening.

When we do re-open we will need volunteers to operate the museum, probably initially 5 days a week. If you can spare us time to run the museum on any days Wednesdays to Sundays inclusive we would be very happy to hear from you. Please contact the museum with your details and we will talk to you about manning the museum when it re-opens. Thank you.
