This is a small musuem run entirley by volunteers. It is very small, barley an acre in size, run by people who are doing it , because they want to. This does mean limited openeing times, and payment is a donation. I really enjoyed this vist. There are three or four aircraftA Vampire , Yak and Percival, traing aircraft that operated out of the feild when it was operational as a traing base. The main intrest is the collection of Bits and Junk. As one volunter put it 'The big musuems would have neither the space nor intrest in odd lumps and bits, but we do, and if someone neds it, we have saved it'. The underground control room, as is normal in such things is tight to get into. There is a cafe and toilets next door in the airfeild cafe. Just up from the musuem is the Wellsbourne Vulcan. The volunters there are only on a Saturday. Small qurky and relaxing. I really did enjoy the place.

A very interesting museum including a small WW2 observation bunker, I was not expecting that. Volunteer staff very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of all things aviation. Great exhibition of WW2 items as well, there is also a Vulcan bomber a short distance away, well worth a visit.

Went on Saturday so that I could get inside the Vulcan bomber, What a great experience it was. Very knowledgeable lady volunteer who spent over 30 minutes giving me information about the plane, its history and the crews who operated it. I'm afraid I had to stop her as I was aware that people were waiting for me outside. Will certainly visit again.

a small, intimate museum run by volunteers, all of whom were a mine of information and able to answer all our questions. There is a small number of aircraft, two of which have the cockpits open for viewing, plus engines and a whole building full of memorabilia connected to the airfields wartime history. There is a roll of honour to the men who were killed during the war, the youngest person on this was just 18yrs old. There is also an underground bunker on site. This was well worth the trip from Telford.
