Cardington Airship Hangars

Cardington Hangar No.1 was built in 1915 followed by No.2. They are Grade 1 listed. The ill fated R101 Airship was built there and the hangars were closed after it's crash in 1930.
Now the hangers stand gaunt in the bedfordshire countryside. Although sometimes used for storage and lately to build a modern airship they stand unused, a mute reminder of a forgotten dream that died with the R101.
