This hangar was dismantled and moved to Cardington, Bedfordshire, in 1928. See images EPW030064 & EPW030065 for shots of the R101 airship flying over the Cardington hangars.

The moved hanger was extended when it was moved to Cardington, and became Hanger 2, the right-hand hanger of the two in the photo posted by Coventry Kid. It housed the R100, designed by private industry.

Windbreaks to provide shelter for the airships and balloons when they are moved out of the hangars.
