Avro Heritage Museum Visit Planned

Are you interested in experiencing some of our country’s most iconic aircraft?

As part of our programme of talks and events, Whitworth Men’s Shed are planning a visit to the Avro Heritage Museum in the near future. The museum is located on the former Woodford Aerodrome near Stockport in Cheshire.

The museum website explains that The Avro Heritage Museum preserves the legacy of Alliott Verdon-Roe and his company A.V. Roe & Co (Avro). The site saw the production of famous aircraft including the Lancaster, Vulcan, Nimrod, and BAe 146. The Avro Heritage Museum is packed with fascinating exhibits and is home to the only example of an all-white Vulcan bomber. “

Even better, the Shed has received funding to subsidise these visits! The all-in cost will be £15 for the day. This will include entrance to the museum, travel to Woodford, and a buffet lunch in the museum café looking out at fantastic views of the mighty Vulcan bomber as it stands proudly outside.

As soon as we have sufficient reservations we will be announcing the date of this visit, but hurry! Minibus places are limited. Come and join our friendly group of like-minded men for what promises to be an interesting and enjoyable day out.
