Preserving the History of Gliding in Great Britain

Steinadler Glider Enters Hangar

The primary aim of the Gliding Heritage Centre is to preserve our British gliding heritage and make it accessible to the public. It is an educational resource where visitors can learn about the history of gliding and the more general aspects of gliding as a sport.

Gliding Heritage Centre is a registered charity (Charity No.1148972).

Situated at Lasham, the largest gliding club in the world; the Gliding Heritage Centre is open for tours 2pm every Sunday throughout the year. If you wish to visit us at any other time, then please see our visits page to find out how to arrange a special visit.

Weather permitting, we fly our gliders on the first Sunday of each month.

and receive monthly emails of GHC events

Many Thanks to Paul Haliday

Very recently Daren Kershaw has taken over from Paul Haliday as the GHC webmaster. Being webmaster is one of those invisible tasks that the majority just take for granted – “It automatically happens, doesn’t it!” Well the reality is there’s an awful lot of work involved, and Paul has been doing this since June 2014 when he took over from Allan Arthurs. The GHC committee would like to express their considerable gratitude to Paul for his endeavours over the years, and welcome Daren as his replacement. Paul is also our “ace” photographer and we very much hope he will continue to aid the GHC with his great pictures.

Construction of the GHC Workshop to Start in Spring 2020

Thanks to a very generous bequest from one of our members, the late Trish Williams, together with other donations, we are now able to start the construction of the GHC workshop. This will enable us to renovate and maintain the collection, keep alive the knowledge and skills involved in working on vintage gliders and demonstrate the techniques to visitors. Work will start in the spring and it planned that the workshop will be operation later in the year.
