A convenient location for long-term vehicle storage.

Situated within the Leicestershire countryside, just 6 miles from the M1, we are perfectly placed to serve the entire UK. Bruntingthorpe boasts 670-acres of land, of which 125 acres are hard-standing to accommodate for cars, trucks and HGV lorries.

We process in excess of 200k vehicles a year. Our extensive facilities allow us to provide secure fleet storage for approximately 25,000 vehicles in a fully-managed, computer-controlled compound. We have no limit on arrivals and boast 70+ dispatch lanes ensuring the process of delivering and collecting vehicles is fast and efficient. Our operations give us the ability to valet and dispatch 800+ cars per day.

Our system relies highly on state-of-the-art real-time technology to offer maximum visibility to our customers. RF tags are applied to every vehicle, enabling fast accurate vehicle location details which are displayed on our web-based system.

Vehicles stored at Bruntingthorpe will receive a comprehensive vehicle inspection if required. For more information see vehicle inspections.

Our business model and the flexibility of our site means we can manage the peaks and troughs of the automotive cycle seamlessly, with no impact on client service.

Site security is of paramount importance to C. Walton with this being a key part of our annual budget. Our 24hr security teams and systems ensure everything is housed securely, covered by infra-red alarms, ringed fencing, thermal imaging cameras, floor mounted stingers, access barriers and frequent dog patrols.


Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
