Aerodrome material wanted


Memorabilia of Wilmington aerodrome from the 1930s is sought by myself, researcher Peter Tyrrell in Polegate.

The project aims to compile as many facts, memories, ephemera and possibly photos from the halcyon period of flying from pastures at Milton Gate Farm beside the A27.

The material can go towards a non-profit making local collection in our ESCC library system or an article for Eastbourne Local Historian magazine as an archive document.

Potentially somebody has an old programme or a brochure tucked away of the Art Deco aerodrome building itself.

Contact me on Eastbourne 487170 or email

Any material offered can be copied and acknowledged as contributing to the archive.
