“There’s the church I got married in, the cottage hospital where I had my children, the primary school and the playgroup I helped set up. All of it will be under concrete.”
Linda McCutcheon, Sipson resident for nearly 40 years.

If Sipson were to be demolished for the airport then it’d not be the first time a settlement had made way for it. The hamlet of Heathrow was destroyed in 1944 to make way for it. You can read about it in Philip Sherwood’s essay ‘Heathrow – The Lost Hamlet’ : Heathrow – The Lost Hamlet.pdf
You can read more about the proposal for a third runway at Heathrow in this presentation given by the NoTrag local residents campaign group (requires Power Point software or similar): heathrowRunway3.ppt
