Wind tunnel built 1934-35.The external fabric of the building is generally in good condition and actively maintained. Regular tours are given and low key use for art exhibitions has been permitted (in association with the Farnborough Air Show) but the future use of the building remains uncertain which is the reason for the at risk status.
