Seaplane hangars at Mount Batten
Seaplane hangars at Mount Batten
These two hangars date from about 1928 when the RAF seaplane base was partially rebuilt. The main doors were on the righthand side and allowed seaplanes to be brought up the slipway from the Cattewater into the hangars for maintenance. They are now used mainly by marine leisure businesses such as yacht repairs but are largely as built. The road in the foreground is new, constructed after the RAF left to give better access to Mount Batten Breakwater and the carpark and hotel there.
