At Persimmon Homes we are proud to be a part of developing 'St Andrew's Park' the former station at RAF Uxbridge.??
Committed to the highest standards of design, construction and service, Persimmon Homes are designing a selection of apartments and houses to suit the local environment, taking the surrounding landscapes and architecture into consideration.?? A history that takes your breath away...
Recorded in both the First and Second World Wars, the station is most recognised for the immense part it played in the Battle of Britain. It was here that No. 11 Group RAF were based, who were responsible for the aerial defence of London and the south-east of England. A bunker, subsequently known as the battle of Britain Bunker, was built nearby to house the 11 Group Operations Room, which controlled fighter squadrons operating within the group. The Operations Room was also responsible for providing air support during the evacuation of Dunkirk in May 1940 and the D-Day Landings. It is not surprising then, that it was here that Sir Winston Churchill famously gave his wartime speech, 'Never was so much owed by so many to so few'.
The bunker, clearly a much valued and historic site, has been retained and transformed into a museum.
St Andrew's Gate, the ceremonial entrance to the north-west of the station was officially opened in 1957 to mark the link between Uxbridge and the Royal Air Force. Some 55 years on, the gate still provides an iconic statement in Uxbridge and will be retained for the benefit of future generations and in recognition of the efforts and sacrifices made by those of whom Sir Winston Churchill spoke, so long ago. The naming of the site has been welcomed within the community.
