Monument to Geoffrey de Havilland
Monument to Geoffrey de Havilland
This marble monument lies beside the Wayfarer's Walk, not far from the A34. The proximity of the road - admittedly rather quieter in 1910 - and the gently undulating landscape make this seem an unlikely spot for a pioneering aviator. Indeed it wasn't wholly a success... Though the inscription doesn't make it clear, this is the spot where de Havilland crashed his first plane - on its maiden flight. It had taken him two years to build.
