Wings over Stonehenge Battle of Mons

Wings over Stonehenge Battle of Mons is another opportunity to walk in Wiltshire’s rich landscape and engage with the history of the county. The walk will cover the early pioneers of  military aviators at Larkhill. See where the Bristol Boxkite made its first flight in 1910 and where the first British military aeroplane unit was formed in 1911. These walks will cover how aviation developed on Lark Hill from 1909-1914 and how the British Expeditionary Force slows von Kluck’s advance towards Paris. These walks aim to recreate the period with contemporary photographs and maps and include viewing the early hangars and crash sites.

The Battle of Mons walk will take place on the 23rd of August starting at 10:30am.
