The Old Aircraft Hangar in Wimbledon West Goods Yard, Dundonald Road
This large building was originally a seaplane hangar at Newhaven in Sussex during the First World War.

The Royal Naval Airstation Newhaven was built in 1917. The base was used by seaplanes to carry out anti U-boat patrols and escort convoys moving in the Channel. Newhaven and Littlehampton were the main ports for stores and munitions. This metal hangar was transported to the Railway yard at Wimbledon around 1923. Prior to being resited it was used as a factory to make concrete - hexagonal piles to repair Newhaven Pier. See: LinkExternal link
