Commentary
Registered as an educational charity in 1998, the Aston Martin Heritage Trust was established by the AMOC to preserve and maintain the collection of Aston Martin memorabilia that had been assembled since the Club’s inception in the 1930s.

The collection is housed in a 14th century tithe barn in the village of Drayton St Leonard.  It includes many of the company’s paper records (photographs, technical drawings, correspondence etc), sporting artefacts, models of almost every car produced by AML, together with a small collection of vehicles.  These include the restored A3; the third Aston Martin to be built.

The Museum is open Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 4.00pm. It is, however, advisable to check in advance that the Barn is not in use for a meeting.  The Archive is open by appointment only.
