Radley panel on display in P & A Wood’s showroom

The Radley panel is now on display in the stunning location of P & A Wood’s showroom. The panel sits amongst some fabulous examples of the Rolls Royce and Bentley marques in the upstairs gallery at the Great Easton location (see main image).

P & A Wood are heavily involved in this year’s Alpine event and will be providing the mechanical support to all the competitors whilst Paul Wood himself will be fielding the oldest car on the event - the 1908 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost called ‘The Silver Dawn’

Paul & Andrew Wood’s company was founded in 1967. The brothers left Rolls-Royce once Andrew had completed his engineering apprenticeship, to start their own business working exclusively with Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars from a workshop in Moreton, Essex. With Andrew in charge of the engineering element within the Company and Paul in charge of sales and coachwork, the business flourished to such an extent that by 1970 they had to move to larger premises in Great Bardfield.

As time passed, the business continued to expand, making it necessary for a second move in 1988 to even larger premises, this time to the village of Great Easton. Existing buildings on the site were modified and converted into Offices, Parts Department and Coachwork facility. Additionally a large new building was erected as an Engineering Workshop, specifically designed to cater for the repair and maintenance of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars. More recently, a new but traditionally styled Showroom has been designed and purpose built on two levels to display Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars of all ages amd this where the Radley panel is displayed.
