Lenabo Forest - Lenabo Airship Base 1914-1919

This plan is courtesy of Great North of Scotland Railway Association who drew up plan.
The airship base was dismantled after the end of the war and the site taken over by the Forestry Commission along with some neighbouring land. Remains of bases and walls can still be found amongst the trees. Beware of holes, pits and other obstacles. Note that Lenabo Forest was sold by the Forestry Commission in the 1990s

Stories and details of the base are attached to this image - click on PDF below the image.

The stories were found in a file in Huntly Forestry Commission Office but no details of actual authors located.
