On a grim and rainy Monday in September 2019 a photography group from East Kent Mencap for people with learning disabilities joined the CITiZAN East Kent Coast Discovery Programme to visit the former site of Pegwell Bay Hoverport.

Come and see amazing images of the Hoverport and its wildlife, taken by members of the group in this exhibition supported by CITiZAN at the Nice Things Gallery.

From its opening in 1969, the Hoverport was to be the future of channel crossing: as fast and glamorous as any airline. In 1982 operations ceased, unable to compete with the slower but larger and cheaper ferries. The buildings have since been demolished and the area is being slowly being taken over by nature.

Visit the East Kent Mencap and CITiZAN websites for more information.
