Shed 1

A small selection of the 600 photos I took on my trip to No 1 Airship Construction Shed at Cardington, Bedfordshire. This shed is now in dire need of repair (as can be seen from the holes in the roof) but ironically is perhaps more beautiful as a result. The shed was orginally constucted in the 1920’s and was used to build a number of of airships, most notably the R101. The shed is aproximatly 160ft high, 180ft wide and a tad over 800ft long – its huge. For more information see the Airship Heritage Trusts website.
