Designed in 1926 by R.F.T. and R.J.T.Granger and C.H.Latimer-Needham, the Archaeopteryx was built over the next four year at Attenborough, Notts. With a parasol configuration it retains a normal fin and rudder.
 
First flown in October 1930, it was flown regularly on short trial hops, mainly from Tollerton, Notts, before being officially registered on 3 June 1932 as G-ABXL cn 3A. The sole example built survived until stored through the war years at Chilwell, and after the war was presented to the Shuttleworth Trust.
