Trinity Chapel

In 1940, the Germans destroyed the Spitfire factories in Southampton and believed they had ended the threat from their nemesis. But unknown to them, the British were building Spitfires in secret. Salisbury became a major centre for manufacturing Spitfires, hidden in sheds, garages, back gardens, a bus depot and a hotel. With a workforce mainly made up of unskilled young girls, boys, women and a handful of engineers, over 2000 Spitfires were built, 10% of the total build, becoming instrumental in winning the war.

Come and see the filmThe Secret Spitfires’ and discover more about the building of these historic planes and the men and women involved.

Norman Parker, a central character in the film, who as a young man was an engineer in the final assembly plant, will introduce the film and will be around afterwards to answer any questions.
