Walney International Airport

Walney International Airport

Passengers for Amsterdam, Paris, New York, Sydney, Tokyo, Buenos Aires and Moscow please get off the bus here!

It was once possible to catch a scheduled flight from Walney airfield, but not to that range of destinations, and not any more. The airfield (which I haven’t featured yet, but have patience) was built by Vickers and now belongs to Vickers’ successor, BAE Systems. It’s used for BAE internal flights and the local gliding club.

Meanwhile, most of the Airport direction signs have been discreetly taken away (the one at the Walney end of the bridge only a few months ago) but this one, attached to the bus stop in North Scale, remains waiting to be consumed by the hedgerow.

Heavens, it’s hard enough to find a bus going to this stop. The kind of people who live in North Scale are much too posh to be seen on a bus!
