The Lashenden Air Warfare Museum is one of the longest-established aviation museums in the country and started life in 1970 by members of a local Royal Air Forces Association.  The museum aims to educate and preserve the aviation and military heritage of the country. Exhibits on display include a Fieseler Fi 103R4 Reichenberg Piloted V1 Flying Bomb, as well as artefacts and displays and the world’s only fully restored and working example of his World War 2 airfield defence fort. The land the museum is on also has aviation history, having been requisitioned at the outbreak of World War II and prepared for operational service and two runways were laid.
