Save our WW2 heritage site - Bushey Hall

565 Signatures Goal: 250

To protect A Part Of our Local and National Wartime Heritage. The Lincolnsfields Childrens Centre is based on the original WW2 site of Bushey Hall Headquarters of the 8th U.S.A.A.F. Fighter Command [Codename AJAX], from 1942 to 1946. In the Fifties this site then became an important Cold War period Anti Aircraft establishment. As a condition of a planning permission granted by Hertsmere Borough Council in March 2004 the new owners of part of the land now intend to shortly demolish ALL the remaining twelve (12) World War 2 buildings on the entire site. Since 2007 the Childrens Centre charity has organised a very successful 1940s War time History education programme. We the undersigned urgently request that this demolition should be prevented and that these important WW2 historic buildings are retained and renovated for future educational and heritage use:

    This teaches the children what the war was really like. It gives them more understanding doing something, rather than reading or writing about it.

    I live in Bushey and Watford and my children grew up visiting this place at least three times a year. We must preserve our history and make it accessible for all, to just those who can drive miles to reach an exhibition. WW2 affected everyone in the UK - the scale of civil defences must be seen to be appreciated. It's not something that happened just to London, or just to coventry - it happened on your doorstep. It;s shaped the world you live in today.
