Godmersham Park was a mooring-out station for anti-submarine patrol non-rigid airships from Capel. The airfield was sited west of the village at the south-west end of the park, and saw activity in the final months of World War One, but peacetime brought swift closure as with all other similar supportive airfields engaged in this role.
