T-Mobile head office complex – part of the new developments on the old airfield.
New houses, Mosquito Way – Hatfield airfield was very important social centre during the Thirties although few traces remain. This is some of the new housing built on the site.

Designed in the 1950s by James M Monro & Son, the architecture firm that designed the original factory buildings in the 1930s (this is possibly one of their last commissions as the firm closed in 1955).
