Aerial view of Hoverlloyd hovercraft at Pegwell Bay

As a teenager, I remember a pretty rough crossing to Calais on one of these!

I took this photograph from a Bristow Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter, based at R.A.F. Manston, Kent with my father as duty SAR pilot that day.

We travelled a few times to Calais on these with a car ----a very good service
at reasonable cost.

Although all the buildings have gone the hardstanding is still there and there are directions signs and parking areas still to be seen. This area is a bit desolate though even though the area in general is still attractive.
