Current Use

After WW2 hostilities ceased, Silloth aerodrome was handed back to No:22 Maintenance Unit and the site was used largely for scrapping and storage. The aifield was used breifly for civil flights in the late 1950s and was closed in 1960. Today the remaining buildings are used for industrial units and an extremely popular sunday market, which takes advantage of the hard standing.
