Heritage Restorations

Established in May 2019, Eden Camp Heritage Restorations (ECHR) is made up of a team of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to breathe new life into Eden Camp’s collection.

Through extensive research, resourcing and skilled work, the ECHR mission is to restore old military and civilian vehicles and machinery back to full working order; bringing history forward to the present day for all to enjoy and experience.

From bicycles and motorcycles, artillery pieces and ‘Mother’, our M50 Sherman tank, you can keep up to date with progress and upcoming projects by following their Facebook page or by speaking to their highly-skilled volunteers on site, in the new Engine Shed and the ECHR workshop.

Last weekend we spoke a lot about our T-34-85 engine- it’s a diesel V-2-34 V12 38.8 litre pushing out 500BHP

So how big is that ? Here’s a visual comparison 😊

A single cylinder on the T34 is the same size as our Ford Ranger engine - 3.2litres !

The horsepower equivalent is 8 and half 1.2L Ford fiestas !

The T34 is fired up for the first time in over two decades!
We will follow up with some photos and a different video tomorrow but we’d thought you’d like to see the first moment 😊

Thanks to Baz @trackfix

For #waybackwednesday we have found this old photo of our receptionist Margret along with a Chelsea pensioner, posed outside our office building circa 1990
In the background you can see our M16 in the first phase of its first restoration, with her name clearly visible ! LYBIE

This is a post war French name given to our M16, and sources suggest it was named to commemorate the WW2 Western Desert Campaign in Libya

Thanks to Pierre for his help
