Historical Summary

Utilising three horizontal ‘timeline’ rows, one each for air, land and sea, this tapestry panel looks at activities from across the District between the years 1820 and 2020, including two national “firsts” - the very first airfield in Britain and the first purpose-built main road for motor vehicles.
