International Bomber Command Centre

Location: Lincolnshire

The Centre was opened to the public in January 2018, with an official Opening Ceremony being held on the 12th April 2018.

“The International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC) is a world-class facility to serve as a point for recognition, remembrance and reconciliation for Bomber Command.  Providing the most comprehensive record of the Command in the world, the IBCC ensures that generations to come can learn of their vital role in protecting the freedom we enjoy today.”

Working alongside Lindum Construction, RG Carter & Influence Landscape Architects, in 2014 to lead the installation of the landscaping scheme and Landscape Visual Impact Assessment Services for the Memorial Park and Memorial Spire for the IBCC. We are proud and honoured to have been the local landscape company who were involved in such a sensitive and prestigious project.

The garden contains 27 lime trees, one for each of the Lincolnshire Stations of Bomber Command, geographically positioned.

Carpets of wildflowers, with poppies lying dormant, are positioned between the Memorial walls.

The team were involved in both phases 1 & 2, over a period of 12 months.

A great experience for all involved, and crucially a legacy for all to visit and enjoy for years to come.
