Walnut & Maple Trip to Shuttleworth

Walnut and Maple headed excitedly on the coach to Shuttleworth Transport Museum on Wednesday. We had a lovely sunny journey and were then warmly welcomed by the staff and volunteers at the museum. We split into two groups and eagerly headed off to explore what Shuttleworth had to offer. The children were delighted with the sheer size and the number of aeroplanes as we headed into the hangers.

We had a look at the gliders hanging from the ceilings and an ornithopter, which is an aircraft that flies by flapping its wings like a bird. We then put on some paper wings, tried to flap them and take off, but unfortunately we were unsuccessful.

We sat on a bench outside hanger 5 enjoying the sunshine, eating our snack and watching aircraft take off and land. It was all very exciting!

After lunch we were treated with a surprise journey. The staff had organised for the children to go on a beautiful Edwardian bus. We all climbed abroad and entertained the driver with a rendition of the Wheels on the Bus!

We saw a wonderful assortment of transportations and the children were thrilled to see such a variety of old vehicles. Shuttleworth were very hospitable and we were lucky to be looked after by such knowledgeable gentlemen.
