EHD – private accounts

EHD London’s fine wine storage facility Locke King Vaults, provides the very best conditions in the United Kingdom for the storage of its customers fine wines.

The underground store, a series of 17 tunnels approximately 1 mile in length, was built on the famous Brooklands site as air raid shelters in 1939. Constructed at the outbreak of the Second World War they were built to protect some 5000 staff employed in the construction of fighter aircraft supporting the war effort.

LKV-Decanter-1Laying dormant yet secure for over sixty years the tunnels have been christened after the British entrepreneur, Hugh Fortescue Locke-King (1848-1926). It was Locke-King who in 1907 originally developed and financed the creation of the world’s first purpose built motor racing circuit, Brooklands; the previous occupier of the site.

Locke-King Vaults will offer a unique facility, rivaling the best conditions in the United Kingdom to store wine, all within close proximity to London.

This operation will be coordinated and administered by EHD’s experienced staff from the main EHD offices and warehouse.

All wines cellared are automatically insured against “all risks” at full replacement value.

We can also offer incentives in regards to collections from other bonded warehouses should clients wish to consolidate their stock.
