Open/Close Menu A website, archive and interactive space celebrating one of Britain's most innovative engineers and inventors, Frederick Lanchester

The Lanchester Motor Company designed and manufactured armoured cars for the Ministry of Defence. They were sent to Belgium, used to rescue pilots after the battle of Ypres and later used on airfields in Britain.

The company also produced staff cars, trucks and over 450 aero-engines for use in the war effort.

The last remaining Lanchester armoured car can be seen at the Tank Museum in Dorset.
