A large-scale redevelopment programme is enhancing in leaps and bounds Brooklands Museum’s presentation of the site’s unique history, with major benefits for the aircraft collection — and, hopefully, the wider British aircraft preservation scene
As a 20th century British heritage site, Brooklands has few equals. It is hard to overstate the place’s importance, whether as the world’s first purpose-built motor racing facility, or as one of British aviation’s most significant centres of design, manufacturing and flying. Its annals are filled with epoch-making events and names to conjure with. Brooklands Museum, first established 30 years ago, has never lacked stories to tell.
