C. Walton Ltd. was incorporated in 1955 and is now based at three locations across the Midlands, allowing us to serve customers across the UK. Our main site is the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome & Proving Ground in Leicestershire where we have the ability to store and manage 25,000 vehicles. Our other two locations include the former airfield, RAF Wyton in Cambridgeshire and Long Bennington in Newark, Lincolnshire. Since the acquisition of Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, the Walton family has focused heavily on investing in the provision of on-site facilities and the formation of robust, strategic partnerships for associated services, to create real value for our clients. This blueprint has been followed and observed in the development of all of our additional sites and locations.


Our main site, situated at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, a 670-acre former USAF strategic airbase, is centrally located for easy access to the UK’s motorway network. We are just 6 miles from Junction 20 on the M1, yet our rural surroundings allow optimum privacy. The Bruntingthorpe site operates full in-life vehicle management solutions.
