View Full Version : Langley
Can anyone confirm if this is Langley as someone suggested it could be Booker or Denham where Airwork were also involved in the 1950s

Doesn't look like Booker, don't know about the other two.
Langley Ministry of Supply plan 1955 ish?
GE '1945' view:
I don't think it is Denham but could be Booker
Doesn't look like Booker either.
Actually I wonder if it is the set of hangars in the woods with the white circular concrete nearby?
I think that you are right.
I found it difficult to match the old views with the current.
The wood in which that cluster of hangars is located is (was) named Home Wood and is here:
Oddly, I can't see any structures recorded on old OS maps from mid 20's through mid '50's but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place!
Peter the Homewood site was where Airwork were located at Langley to start with - At least it was called the Homewood site which was in or near woods.
That should clinch it then. Your photograph is Langley (Bristol) and the buildings were on the west edge of Home Wood.
Thanks Peter - unfortunately I do not have a date but it is either late 1940s or early 1950s.
