Three former World War I aircraft hangars at Old Sarum Airfield, Portway, Laverstock - Wiltshire (UA)

One single and two paired aircraft storage hangars which were designed in 1917 and built in 1918. They are constructed with piers, curtain walls and gantries brickwork with 'Belfast' roof trusses. The hangars are deteriorating fast due to a sustained period of neglect. Recent planning applications relating to the wider Old Sarum Airfield proposed their restoration, but these were dismissed at appeal.
