Silver City at Ferryfield
 

If anyone has any photos I would be pleased to show them here, please drop me a line anytime email

On 14th July 1953, five years after Silver City had started their car ferry services from Lympne, Air Commodore Powell announced formal plans to build a new airport near Dungeness in Kent. Car ferry traffic was exceeding their forecasts so a reliable and suitable airport was needed for the bulk of their services. Lympne's grass runways were sometimes waterlogged in poor weather

The new airport was estimated to cost around 140,000 initially and would have two concrete runways, though by completion costs had risen to 250,000. Ferryfield Airport would open on 13th July 1954, with its first vehicle ferry flight the next day.

Over that first year, 1954-1955, Ferryfield would handle 88,621 passengers and 54,032 vehicles; by 1960 Ferryfield was the UK's 2nd busiest airport, second only to London Airport.

Ferryfield Airport is still there in Kent, but it is now known as Lydd. Below we have some photos of the airport, inside and out, back in the day when Silver City's Freighters flew in and out every 3 minutes.
