The Yorkshire Connection and Beyond

The Barnes Wallis Trust, together with the Royal Society and , will be celebrating the 80th anniversary of the R.100 airship’s first transatlantic flight with a touring exhibition called ‘Barnes Wallis – The Yorkshire Connection and Beyond.’

The exhibition forms part of the Royal Society’s 350th anniversary celebrations with a national programme of events celebrating ‘Local Heroes.’

Sir Barnes Wallis was based at the Howden Airship station in the East Riding whilst he oversaw the design and construction of the R100 airship between 1926 and 1929. Famously renowned for his ‘bouncing bomb’ this exhibition gives the visitor an invaluable insight into the life and work of Sir Barnes Wallis and the opportunity to learn more about the inventive genius of the man.

A series of talks and a film on the building of the R100 have been organised in conjunction with the exhibition.

Nial Adams, the council’s principal officer, said: “I am delighted that my team have worked in partnership with the energetic Barnes Wallis Memorial Trust to produce an excellent exhibition exploring the work of this great engineer and  designer.”
