The Avro Heritage Museum is situated on the site of the old Woodford Airfield. The current museum site was donated by BAE Systems when the airfield and Aircraft assembly plant was closed down. The airfield fire station building has been converted into a state of the art museum and was handed over to the Avro Heritage Trust in May 2015. It opened to the public on November 13th 2015.
