Peaceful contemplation and remembrance
THE LINCOLNSHIRE PEACE GARDEN
Includes 27 native trees marking each of the operational Bomber Command stations in the county during the war. Interpretation, both digital and physical, will help you to trace the history of each station and the Squadrons that were stationed there.
THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN
Pays homage to the 62 nations who served or supported the Command. Covering 5 continents, the stories of their involvement is one that is rarely known. Use the IBCC app to discover more about the range of nations and the contribution they made.
In addition to the Peace Gardens we have a Dig For Victory Garden in which we grow fruit, vegetables and herbs for the Centre and the Jubilee Grove, with trees planted to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Altogether we have planted over 4,000 trees and shrubs since taking on the site in 2014.
We have worked really hard to make our gardens not only beautiful for our visitors but to encourage habitats for wildlife. To learn about some of the work we have been doing, click here.
This work is supported by our IBCC Gardening Club. If you have green fingers and would like to be involved, please see more on our volunteers page here.
