As one of the Men of Kent, I can confirm that Lympne is pronounced the same as limb.

Didn't Skyways manage to land a 748 upside down at Lympne

. . . indeed they did, 11 July 1965. A search for "G-ARMV accident" on Flickr will reveal a couple of pictures and and press cuttings . . .

I have no idea how I pronounced it when I went there around 1971/3 in a HS125. All I remember was the runway was rough ( or was it my landing? )

No not my landing as take off was rough too a bit like Moscow in winter in the late 70's

Doesn't the Roman name Pontus Lemanus come from the earlier Greek "Limani" (note the 3 syllables!) meaning port or bay, which Lympne once was?
