LIA closed due to COVID-19

Unfortunately from today, Thursday 19th March 2020, the Lanchester Interactive Archive space is closed to visitors for the foreseeable future due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

However you can still take a virtual 3D tour of the exhibition space by following this link or clicking on the window below. Click around with your mouse or use your keyboard arrows to look around the space.

You can also still explore the online archive of thousands of pages of Fred Lanchester’s notebooks, sketchbooks, patents and correspondence as well as fascinating photographs and blueprints from his extraordinary life.

We will be developing and showcasing more of the archive online over the coming weeks and months, so follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

We have some really exciting news about our ‘new’ 1932 Lanchester car.  One of the first cars to be built in the Daimler and Lanchester factory on the Radford Road in Coventry, this is the same model that  won the first RAC Rally, also in 1932!

We will be sharing much more about this beautiful car and how it will be used to raise the profile of all things Lanchester over the coming weeks.

Meanwhile take a trip around the Coventry ring road in our Lanchester and hopefully we will be out and about as soon as it is safe to do so!
