The Aston Martin Heritage Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, with charity number 1182793. Its aim is “the advancement of education by making available for study, research material of all types relating to the automotive engineering and automotive designs of Aston Martin Lagonda for the benefit of the public including reports, documents, drawings, artefacts and any other material including the history of the companies, products and personalities associated with Aston Martin Lagonda”

How it started

It was founded by the Aston Martin Owners Club in 1998 to protect the ever-increasing collection being gathered by its Members. At the time, this included the 1934 Ulster, archival material and memorabilia. Since then, the AMHT has grown substantially as an independent organisation and works hard to capture and share the history and ongoing story of one of the most famous marques in British history.

Aston Martin Museum

The AMHT is proud to manage the Aston Martin Museum in Drayton St Leonard, Oxfordshire, and runs a number of events aimed at public education and engagement with the marque. We also offer research and registrar services to researchers, car owners and the public, and provide heritage support to Aston Martin Lagonda.

The collection

The AMHT now cares for over 25 important Aston Martin cars and prototypes, including A3, the oldest surviving Aston Martin, and a vast array of racing memorabilia, models and artefacts. Our archive holds the largest collection of Aston Martin records in the world, including factory records, publications, workshop manuals and thousands of photographs.
