Time for a slghtly tenuous hobby link! Gaydon was site of an RAF airfield that opened in 1942 and served primarily in an OTU capacity, training aircrew during WWII. It continued to function after the war and was home to the first Vickers Valiant squadron, the first of the RAFs nuclear capable V bomber fleet.
Subsequently the field served other roles including as Victor and Canberra OCUs but closed in 1974 although an RAF gliding unit lingered for a little while. Subsequently the airfield was purchased by British Leyland and converted in to test track use. Today it contains the Aston Martin HQ together with the Jaguar Land Rover centre.
Als0 on site is the British Motor Museum, the subject of this post. It contains around 300 vehicles and is the largest museum collection of British vehicles anywhere, tracing motoring history back to the earliest days and including a number of protoypes as well as sporting vehicles and the odd film star as well.
Naturally I took many pictures, too many for here so this selection is limited to vehicles that I have memories of whilst growing up and starting out in adult life.
