Fabulous museum, like a tardis, bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside.

Housing the collections of many dedicated volunteers, the museum houses artifacts and stories relating to WWI airdrome Suttons Farm and its succesor, RAF Hornchurch which was one of the key sector airfields during the Battle of Britain.

The volunteers at the museum are knowledgeable and friendly, and the tea room is decent value too.

I particularly enjoyed the home front room which is a recreation of a 1940s living room, and the stories of local civilians so close to an obvious German target for the bombers.

Only open at weekends, it is worth planning a trip to visit.

Splendid museum so much information, enthusiastic volunteers and experts brimming with information and fact.
So much to see, a second visit will be needed to fully absorb.
Only negative parking very limited on site.
