Birthplace and Cradle of British Aviation

History of Aviation
It was the First headquarters of the UK Aero Club, The Short Brothers constructed their first factory on adjacent land and the first recorded flight/circular mile in Britain was made here by JTC Brabazon in 1909. A commemorative exhibition of these events is displayed in our Bar.
