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 β€˜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.

We wanted to show you a little something from the archives at Eden Camp, a piece of Jet Provost donated by RAF Linton on Ouse due to its closure.

On 8th March 1989, the pilot of this Jet Provost, was undertaking an aerobatic practice when the aircraft got into an inverted spin over the Malton area, the pilot, having lost control at 9,000 feet, ejected safely at 5,000 feet.

The plane came down near Great Habton just a few miles from Eden Camp.

The pilot had received no training on how to regain control from such a position that the aircraft had got into. The Student Pilot - Flying Officer W K Owen RAF, ejected safely, landed by parachute, and was uninjured.

A fantastic piece of local modern history

New for 2021! We have started the process of digitising our archive , which contains over 70,000 items!
