DESCRIPTION

Greenham Control Tower opened its doors in Summer 2018 as a visitor centre and community hub with the aim to preserve and share the historical legacy of one of the few remaining airfield buildings. Telling the story of Greenham Common whilst supporting and cooperating with local organisations for the benefit of the whole community. Run entirely by volunteers, we want to promote four key themes:

  • NATURE CONSERVATION AND WILDLIFE
  • THE MILITARY AND COLD WAR HISTORY OF THE COMMON
  • THE SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE COMMON
  • THE ROLE OF PROTEST IN SOCIETY

  The control tower offers an open space to enjoy the common from a fascinating and dynamic location with a range of activities and facilities aimed at all ages to educate, inform and entertain where you can reach for the skies from the comfort of the ground.
