The Archives

DOCUMENTS FOR OVER 100,000 CARS

THE TREASURE TROVE OF ROLLS - ROYCE AND BENTLEY HISTORY

The technical archives, was built through the enthusiasm, energy and generosity of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club led by the General Secretary, Eric Barrass, whose name was given to this building.

The Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation is grateful to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for their generous and continuing support.

The unique and ever growing archives contain chassis cards, construction and test records for over 100,000 cars, correspondence and publicity material.

Among the archives are virtually all of the original blueprints and parts drawings from Rolls-Royce and Rolls-Royce produced Bentley chassis and cars.

These drawings are used to enable parts to be remanufactured to exactly the same specification and quality as the original. A vast amount of coachbuilder information is also available, such as design sketches, original watercolours and finishing sketches.

A vast photographic library is housed in the Baines Wing and there is also a beautiful bespoke library containing essentially every Rolls-Royce and Bentley book ever written. It also contains a bound set of the Autocar from 1904 and handbooks in many languages
