Our member, The Friends of Panshanger Park, is campaigning to save Humphry Repton’s design for the Broadwater in Panshanger Park which is in danger of being destroyed for gravel extraction.
Repton’s Broadwater at the western end of the park has been retained more or less intact but the owners, Lafarge Tarmac, now propose to destroy the lower Broadwater by breaching the narrow strip of land between it and the lagoon which has already been created to the south.
A team of committed volunteers from The Friends are working to preserve the park but would welcome help and support in its ongoing campaign to save the Broadwater in its original design, and to encourage Lafarge Tarmac to honour their legal commitments of restoration and public access.
Further details can be obtained from The Friends of Panshanger Park’s website.
