Cardington Hanger

Huge congratulations to Pat Pattan and all at Fosbern Hangers Ltd on completing the refurbishment of Shed One at Cardington, Bedfordshire.

Originally constructed in 1916 to house the R31 airships, extensive refurbishment has been underway since 2012.  In this time construction workers have painted 20 acres of steel work, removed and replaced 12 acres of sheeting, and replaced the 5 acre concrete floor.  All this at a cost of around £10 million.

The shed was officially reopened on October 16th by the Mayor of Bedford.
