British School House, Broadway Road Moreton in Marsh Gloucestershire England
The Wellington Aviation Museum is situated in Moreton-in-Marsh in the northern Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. The museum is dedicated to the history of the Vickers Wellington bomber, and to all those who served or who passed through RAF Moreton-in-Marsh, on one of the many training courses for RAF bomber command during the Second World War. The museum keeps the memory of the base alive with a vast range of artefacts from World War 11 and beyond. | As you pull up outside the museum you will see propellers and wheels from the aircraft most used at Moreton-in-Marsh, the Vickers-Armstrong Wellington. There is also a casing for the 4000lb bombs dropped by the aircraft and around the back there is the whole tail section of one aircraft, showing the famous Barnes Wallis designed geodetic structure which made the aircraft so strong and easy to repair.| The Museum gives a great flavour of the atmosphere during the birth, life and death of this RAF station. The Wellington Aviation Museum’s aim is to show a little more of the station life, the aircrews, ground crews, administrators, WAAFS and medical staff who lived, loved, flew, serviced, played, worked and sometimes died at RAF Moreton-in-Marsh.
