Bentham Works was the original site of the Gloster Aircraft Company. Yes, it was deliberately abbreviated because international customers claimed that the name "Gloucestershire" was too difficult to spell :)
Bentham Works was where many of the UK's early fighter jets were prototyped and tested. GAC used the site from 1940 to 1963, since when the buildings have changed hands a few times up until 1998. Since that time the buildings have remained empty.
Visted on a very cold day with below freezing temperatures.... If you do go here, don't put grab the door handles, otherwise you will make acquaintance with anti intruder paint as I found out.. :rolleyes:
