Sandy TIC Autumn/Winter Talk
Date Added: 01/11/2014
We again welcome David Fowler who will speak about ’The Rise and Fall of the Cardington Airships’. David gave this talk last November, but such was the great interest that we had to turn down over 50 people and so as promised we are holding this talk again this year. David will speak about the history of airships and Cardington through two World Wars to the present day. The massive hangars at Cardington were built during World War 1 to accommodate the construction of airships by Shorts. David will speak about this industry and the famous Airships including the R31, R100 and the R101 bringing the story to modern times
The Talk will cost £5.50 per person Space is limited and booking is advised.
Refreshments will be served at the talk by the Sandy branch of the Leprosy Mission for which donations will be gratefully received
Please call in or contact the Tourist Information Centre to book your place.
