Save event

Listen to a talk by Plymouth University geographer, Clive Charlton, as he explores the evolution of Roborough, its air services and the various proposals that have existed over the years for an alternative airport for Plymouth.

Clive will be taking a look at the evolution of Plymouth's airports and air services over the years, including the various attempts to find a new airport site as well as the 'ups and downs' of the city's air links.

Please note: this talk will not provide a forum for a debate about the future of the city's airport.
