Lost Landscape of Heroes
To Whom it May Concern
About the Project
The “Lost Landscape of Heroes” project organised by the Landscape Heritage Research
Foundation, is a part of the Isle of Axholme and Hadﬁeld Chase Landscape. The project is
about working with local people to re-discover a lost heritage of military landscapes in the
area. The Isle played a part in all major conflicts in the 20th Century with the significant
features from WW2 being particularly obvious. With many of these remains being forgotten
and some now very much at risk, much of the military history and heritage is in danger of
being lost completely. Alongside the fieldwork and archival research being undertaken by
the project volunteers, it sets out to capture memories of the people and their experiences
before they too are lost and to record the heritage which remains.
Oral Histories & Reminiscences — ‘I Remember When …’
The memories of local people are a valuable resource. We need to record these memories
before they are lost to current research and future generations. We have a team of trained
volunteers to help record these memories, compiling them into a unique archive of local
history from the viewpoint of those who have lived there – in their own words.
We are looking for people who wish to share their memories along with any photographs,
documents or other memorabilia, with the project. For anyone who wishes to write their
memories, please fill in one of our ‘I Remember When …’ forms. We will use this information as a basis for our Project Discovery Day in March 2019. The information will also be lodged with archives locally.

4R Proposal Swinefleet
As I promised residents, I recently met with 4R who are behind the controversial potential planning application in Swinefleet. Many residents turned up to the recent consultation event, as did representatives from my office.
Sadly, I was unable to attend and therefore undertook to meet 4R myself to express my reservations about their proposed operation and the concerns of local residents.
I had a very civil meeting with representatives of 4R but it is fair to say we had to agree to differ about the impact of this potential operation and the appropriateness of the site proposed.
The crux of 4R’s argument was that there is a local need for their product and that the site they have selected already had permissions in place which allow it to be used for operations which can already have an impact on local residents.
I take a slightly different view and expressed this to them, particularly the impact that their operation could have from a transport point of view. With up to 32 HGV movements a day through Old Goole and Swinefleet as part of this operation, it is clear that there could be quite an impact on local residents.
I explained to 4R that we have had more than our fair share of disruption locally, not least with the construction of so many wind farms in the area and many of us feel there has already been enough industrialisation of our rural area from these.
I made very clear that residents are very concerned about an increase in HGVs and concerns about what some of these could be carrying and also when these movements would take place.
In short, we had a very civil meeting but I made clear to them that my job was to represent the concerns of local residents and that I would be doing just that if and when this progresses to a full application. Those concerns are legitimate and I will ensure that residents are kept fully updated.
