The Alex Moulton Charitable Trust (a UK registered charity, no: 273158) cares for The Hall estate and its unique collection, in Bradford on Avon. As well as being a magnificent Jacobean mansion, The Hall has a long industrial heritage, first with the wool industry and later the introduction of rubber to England by Stephen Moulton. The prominent engineer Dr Alex Moulton also lived and worked here, designing the suspension system for the classic Mini and his suspension systems were fitted to over 12 million cars between 1959 – 2002. Dr Moulton also designed the iconic small wheeled Moulton Bicycle, which is still made on the estate today by the Moulton Bicycle Company.
The Trust’s vision is to nurture and inspire future generations of innovating engineers and designers and to inform, excite and engage the community in the unique industrial legacy of the Moulton family of Bradford on Avon. We welcome visitors of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy what The Hall and its collection has to offer.
Our impact includes the preservation of The Hall estate and its important industrial and engineering collection and engagement and education within our local community and beyond.
