No Open Day was held in 2018. However we had a very successful Classic Car Event which was held on Sunday, 9th September 2018. We were blessed with a glorious warm Autumn day. To help the day along,

Fish and Chips, Ice Creams and of course Tea & Coffee were readily available.

View from Control Tower showing some of the cars

but with many more hidden by the trees, like the Vauxhall below

We had a steady stream of visitors to look at all the classic and vintage

cars on display. Also, because it is the weekend of the Ipswich and area

Heritage Day our Control Tower Museum is one of the attractions


In addition to the many beautiful classic cars there was a wonderful static display of model aircraft. These models are radio controlled and one of models was even powered by a gas turbine engine. They are lovingly built and flown by dedicated enthusiasts.

A number of working stationary vintage engines were present. They were used at one time to pump water and generate electricity on farms and outlying houses.

It is very satisfying for our hard working volunteers to see how popular our Control Tower museum is and we thank all the visitors for coming and

supporting us.
