Hooton Park Trust, The,Ellesmere Port Information
The three WWI Belfast Truss Hangers on the site of the old Hooton Aerodrome now the home of Vauxhall Motors (VM), Ellesmere Port were purchased in 2000 by The Hooton Park Trust (HPT). The Trust was formed from local pressure groups set up in response to an application from VM for consent to demolish the buildings.

The Hooton Park Trust is now working with the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and other bodies to secure funding for the long term preservation and restoration of the site. Access is limited due to the condition of the buildings, but a small display area has been set up by The Friends of Hooton Park. Various voluntary groups chiefly involved in aviation preservation are housed on site.

Visits can be arranged through Steve McGovern the general manager contact details as given. A number of special events are organised through out the year and are advertised in the local press.

The onsite groups are The Aeroplane Collection, contact G Sparkes 0161 866 8255, Friends of Hooton Park also through the Hooton office and The Griffin Trust contact C Thomas 0151 327 4701. Visits to the site can be arranged through the groups.
