We are the charitable organisation set up to preserve, restore and maintain historic military vehicles from both World Wars, and to educate the public about their history. Our unique line-up of rare and important military vehicles that we have rescued, including tanks and other armoured fighting vehicles, is considered to be one of the finest working collections in the world.

The Weald Foundation is a working collection where schools, engineers, historians, modellers, enthusiasts and collectors come together to discover and learn.

We source original components and where necessary, create new parts from the original blueprints or examples. Our research into the history of every vehicle in our collection – where and when it was assembled, its role in combat and the story of the people who operated them or fought against them – provides unique authenticity to our work.

We receive no UK government funding so our work in restoring vehicles and creating a centre of technical and historical excellence depends on your support.
