Brooklands Museum
Brooklands Museum
Brooklands was a 2.75-mile (4.43 km) motor racing circuit and aerodrome built near Weybridge. It opened in 1907, and was the world's first purpose-built motorsport venue, as well as one of Britain's first airfields, which also became Britain's largest aircraft manufacturing centre by 1918. The circuit hosted its last race in 1939, and today part of it forms the Brooklands Museum.

Most of the track has now been built on, but some of the steep sided banking still remains, some of which is part of the museum, with another section running along side Barnes Wallis Drive, which now intesects it. The remains of the track, aerodrome and World War II buildings are a scheduled ancient monument LinkExternal link
