Hooton Hangars, Airfield Way

Hooton Hangars, Airfield Way, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire CH65 1BQ View on map

The Hooton Park site is a World War I / World War II airfield site which now consists of three Grade II listed Belfast Hangars built in 1917. Grant aided No 2 hangar is in a reasonable state of repair and work is expected to commence on replacing the existing roof covering on this building. Hangars No 1 and 3 need considerable major work. The 100 year history of the Hooton Park Trust is displayed in one of the adjacent buildings along with displays and exhibits on the more recent aviation history.
