THE GLIDING HERITAGE CENTRE - APPEAL
GHC Workshop Artists Impression

With Hangar 2 now open and fully operational, we are looking towards the next stage of the GHC journey.

The GHC collection includes 14 airworthy gliders that must be kept in flying condition, our work includes restoration projects, may one day include the construction of replicas and we hope to teach the next generation of glider restorers woodworking techniques.

For this to happen we desperately need a dedicated workshop, as our current shared arrangements cannot support all our existing and future works.

Our plan is to build a 12 by 24 metre workshop, created to the latest industry standards, to allow us to continue our work, but also to provide a safe, secure space for members of the public to see us at work.

Proposed GHC Workshop Floor Plan.

GHC Workshop Floor Plan

Because the building will be a working area, it must have built in dust extraction, ventilation, insulation and have a heat loss certificate to prove its thermal efficiency.

Technically, this will be the most challenging of all the GHC building projects so far, but when complete, will become a great asset in allowing the GHC to move closer to fulfilling its aim of being the premier national gliding heritage facility in the United Kingdom.
