Lying on the banks of the River Ivel - just a few miles from Bedford – this fascinating village hosts the Shuttleworth Collection of Historic Aeroplanes and Cars.

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.
