THE Rhyl-Wallasey Hovercraft will feature on an ITV Welsh heritage series tonight (April 11).

The hovercraft, which ran from Rhyl to Moreton, the Wirral, will be one of the focuses of Vanished Wales on ITV1 at 8pm.

Vanished Wales reveals the lost landmarks of Wales and the heritage that's disappeared from its towns and cities since the 1960s.

The hovercraft service ran between July and September 1962, and was operated by British United Airways through Furness Withy Ltd (Shipping Agents).

Rhyl and Moreton were chosen as they had flat beaches that would aid the ship when the tide was in.

Its last trip was on September 14, leaving Moreton for Rhyl.

When just over half way, one of the lift engines failed, followed by the other soon after, with the hovercraft eventually making it to Rhyl.

It was scheduled to do 12 trips a day, yet only ran on 19 of the 54 days of its lifespan.
