Phase two of the International Bomber Command Centre begins

Written by on 3rd October 2016

Ground has been broken on the site for the next phase of the new International Bomber Command Centre on Canwick Hill in Lincoln.

It has been a year since the first phase of the International Bomber Command Centre was completed giving Lincoln yet another iconic landmark. The spire is just one part of a bigger project, which is now well under way.

Chairman of the Trust and father of the project, Tony Worth, spoke about his passion project and thanked all those who had been involved and made the project possible. He was joined by Bomber Command veteran, Air Commodore Charles Clarke who helped him with the official ground breaking.

Tony thought the day was: “Absolutely amazing,” saying “what I’m really proud of is the people who have been helping me: the volunteers, and the university, the HLF, they’ve all been brilliant.”

Not only did the official ground breaking occur, but the fantastic Lancaster Bomber flew past to commemorate the event.

This is only the second stage of a multi stage project which the team are hoping will really impact the city.

Tony said: “We’re still working hard on getting the archives sorted. The university are working very hard on that. They’ll be an information centre, and education centre, a restaurant, a shop, and all state of the art stuff.”

The centre will hopefully become a big part of Lincoln, drawing in a wide range of people from across the world. Those involved are also hoping that the large site will serve as extra parking for the city, especially coaches, allowing for shuttles into the city centre.

The new centre will be called the Chadwick centre, and is set to be open in September next year.
