Where is RAF Woodford ?

At the moment there is zero access to the old factory site. The new heritage centre is due to be handed over to the Trust back end of April but won't open until August as it needs exhibits moving in etc.

Has anyone spoken to the Avro Heritage Trust about getting access to the site for the start?

In the absence of a response I'll answer myself.
I was at an Avro Heritage Trust meeting today and the powers that be think there may be an option to start at the Museum. It's still on target to be handed over to the Trust in April and open to public in August but pix outside next to 603 are possibly feasible. Depends on the contractors. Lee will be getting an email in the next few days.

thats good news when I originally asked theybsaid they would love to but would have to decline due to the building not being ready,  shame they didnt let me know earlier otherwise their logo could have been included into the teams shirts, signed them off today!!!

Who were you emailing last time ?

Perhaps the fact I'm asking means the guys I'm talking to haven't got it. I made the mistake of looking in the magazine - silly me.
