Lying on the banks of the
River Ivel - just a few miles from Bedford –
this fascinating village hosts the
Shuttleworth Collection of Historic Aeroplanes
The collection, displayed in an aerodrome, was launched in the 1920s by Richard Shuttleworth and is now run by a trust.
His museum contains an array of aircraft (including a 1909 Bleriot plane and a 1941 Spitfire) as well as old carriages, motorcars and bicycles, while special flying displays are staged each summer.
