It does look like Avro, but they ceased to exist as an independant design house in 1962 when all the Hawker Siddeley companies ditched their historic
names and instead began trading as divisions of Hawker Siddeley. Avro, at this time, Became known as 'Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Woodford
The design being invesatigated certainly looks a bit later than 1962, but its always possible that an old engineer kept his old overalls.
I doubt its one of the pre-Typhoon designs (AST 403) as Woodford was never involved in any fighter work, concentraiting on bomber and transport
The fighter teams were located at HSA Kingston (ex-Hawker) HSA Hatfield (ex De Havilland) and HSA Brough (ex-Blackburn).
Its a puzzler alright.
