The Short Brothers

The photos are of the Short Brothers statue that was unveiled by the great niece of the brothers in May 2013. The three Short Brothers were early aviation and aircraft manufacturers from Eastchurch, on the Isle of Sheppey.

They set up their first factory and airfield at nearby Leysdown. It is here outside Muswell Manor that the statue can be seen.

There are plenty of news articles on the Kentonline web, including a Youtube video of the unveiling.

A comment by the Sculptress stated: "I felt we ought to have something in Leysdown to be proud of and remember the past and history."

When our 'tribute to Harriet's pioneering achievement' is unveiled, I am certain that it will elicit similar favourable comments.
