and to record all those achievements and preserve them for further generations.

RAF Burtonwood Heritage Centre

Over 18,500 Americans were based at RAF Burtonwood during ww2 and over 70,000 service personnel served there during its 54 year history until closure in 1993.
The influence of the base on Warrington and the local community was very significant including 7500 marriages to GIs during its history.
RAF Burtonwood represents a special link between US troops and people of the UK, not all of whom were stationed soldiers but also including the many civilians whose lives were permanently changed by the base.
RAF Burtonwood exists to preserve the memory of the base and has been fortunate to acquire many artefacts including equipment actually used at the base and other relevant period items.

RECORD - Local Environmental Records Centre

We are a wildlife conservation organisation and our mission is to further the appreciation, understanding and protection of the Cheshire region’s wildlife and habitats. Our main role is to collect and manage information on the natural environment from this area. As part of this, we support wildlife recorders of all abilities in the local area through providing advice and information and facilitating networking and connections amongst the community. We aim to make wildlife recording accessible and attractive to everyone, for the benefit of both people and the environment.

Most of this data that we hold and manage comes in the form of biological records, but we also hold information on habitats and geodiversity sites. We aim to make this information available to those who need it locally so that it can contribute to the understanding of local biodiversity and ultimately to the protection of species and habitats.

Our work is underpinned by the valuable support of volunteers.
