Gravesend Airport Heritage Project is a group set-up to research, explore and commemorate the wartime RAF station at Gravesend in Kent and its former existence as London East Airport. The Project owes its existence to a Facebook Group founded in November 2013, which showed that there was an active group of people interested in exploring and keeping-alive the Airport’s history and also, that there was generally a lack of knowledge elsewhere, of the role that this site played in the early years of aviation and during World War II
This website is not intended to be a replacement for the Facebook Group; which we still intend to continue as the main ‘discussion’ area of the Project. This website is intended to be a repository for images and other media relating to the Airport; that is searchable and accessible in a way that is not possible within the Facebook format.
