Local historian David Fowler will speak about the history of the airships and Cardington from the First World War to the present day.

His talk, which has been organised by Sandy Tourist Information Centre, is called The Rise and Fall of the Cardington Airships.

The hangars were built during the First World War 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.

The talk will take place on Wednesday, November 6 at 7.30pm in the Sandy Town Council offices in Cambridge Road, Sandy.
