Croydon Airport: former control tower
Croydon Airport handled London's international air travel in the inter-war years before being supplanted by Heathrow shortly after World War II.
The former airport building now sits on the edge of an industrial estate on the A23 Purley Way, with most of the former airport site given over to open space. The airport terminal building is now an office development called Airport House.
