    History of this Location


    Land acquired by Avro adjacent to the Seaplane base in 1916, where an aircraft factory was built amdist a community of aviation activities. Juan de Cierva moved here in 1925 to begin a 15 year collaboration with Avro on the development and production of autogyros, which eventually transferred to Hanworth.

    The airfield component closed and flying was transferred across the road to Hamble North around 1931. The factory remained open.
