Howden Airship Station
Howden Airship Station
This is all there is to see of the site of an airship station from the 1920s. The circular concrete circles were the bases of gas tanks and water tanks. All traces of the huge hangars have long since disappeared. Two of the eminent engineers who worked on the projects were Barnes Wallis and Nevil Shute.
