Britain By Car - A Motoring History


Located about seven miles to the north west of London, Hendon was, until the mid-nineteenth century, primarily an area of woodland and small farms.  Its urbanisation began with the coming of the railway in 1868; further development followed after 1923 when Hendon Central Station opened as part of the London Underground.



A short-lived car manufacturer, whose founder was a British aviation pioneer and largely responsible for creating Hendon Aerodrome - once, London’s main airport.

The factory was on the site of what is now the Royal Air Force Museum, Grahame Park Way, London, NW9 5LL.

1920 – 1924 (Grahame-White).
