Central General Service Hangar, South Road, Hooton, Ellesmere Port - Cheshire West and Chester (UA)

One of a group of three former World War I aircraft hangars. Owned by a trust dedicated to its restoration and largely used at present as a storage facility. Substantial repairs to massive valley gutter implemented with grant support from Historic England. New roof surface has been installed, a significant improvement to the condition of the building. Proposals are in development to undertake final set of outstanding repairs. A grant offer from Historic England for the repair of the annex structures has been accepted.
