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.
