This year we are commemorating the 111th anniversary of the birth of Richard Shuttleworth who was born on the 16th July 1909, and also the 80th anniversary of his death on 2nd August 1940.
A blue ribbon has been tied around the tree that was planted in the grounds of Old Warden Park to mark his birth in 1909 and is visible from the North Parkland that you can explore as part of your visit to Shuttleworth.
The hangars at Shuttleworth that house Richard’s collection are open once again so you can find out more about Richard and also see some of the vehicles and aircraft that he collected.
It is also possible to see some of the Collection in our latest virtual air display ‘Treasured Moments at Old Warden’ which is available to watch online now. Click here to purchase.
Proceeds from the virtual air display will go to our emergency appeal to help recover from the dreadful covid-19 closure.
