The Museum of Berkshire Aviation

About

Berkshire's dynamic contribution to aviation history is graphically re-captured at the Woodley museum. Run as a charitable trust, the museum is at the historic site of Woodley airfield, near Reading - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. Miles and Handley Page aircraft built at Woodley are being reconstructed and exhibited along with a fascinating pictorial record and priceless archives.
