GUIDED TOUR IWM Duxford ‘west side’  THURSDAY 13th  SEPTEMBER 4.15 for 4.30pm start

Join our free guided tour to rediscover the west end of the Duxford site – past, present and future. Learn about the famous Land Warfare Hall & areas of interest inside & outside that area – and IWM plans to re-purpose and re-landscape there and build a brand new COLLECTIONS CARE & CONSERVATION CENTRE– for which planning permission has just been granted.

Our guide, IWM Curator Craig Murray has undertaken special research of the surrounding area. As well as hearing about planned development and improvements, the visit will highlight items of special interest, many viewed from a long viewing balcony as realistic tableaux, from the world- renowned vehicles collection & other exhibitions (eg. the Far East ‘Forgotten War’) both INSIDE the huge Land Warfare Hall and OUTSIDE it, (like the tank turning area and the ‘Whale’) – including ‘historic remains’ not before shown off, and information on previous archaeological study. DON’T MISS IT! Our annual guided tours always throw new light on areas of the museum, which prompt leisurely exploration later and stimulate interest in ‘volunteering’.

It is helpful to have numbers in advance so please let Debbie know if you are planning to attend:  debbiebrightwwfc@aol.com or Tel. 01223 832453
