Shoreham Airport

Postcard of the Avro sheds at Shoreham Airadrome Cerca 1914

Shoreham airport is built on a salt marsh 6 miles west of Brighton and 5 miles east of Worthing. It is the oldest licensed airport in the United Kingdom, with its opening taking place on 20th June 1911. The location was chosen as the sight offered easy transport to and from London and the continent, its location would also appeal to sightseers. Avro (aircraft manufacture) moved its flight school from Brooklands in surrey to Shoreham in October 1912 and it occupied several of the six to ten hangars (or sheds as they where known prior to World War One)which had been built alongside a grandstand for the Circuit of Europe and Round Britain Air Races in 1911.
