The Trust regrets that in the light of Friday’s announcement regarding the closure of pubs, clubs, theatres, leisure centres and other public spaces, it has no option but to close The Wing and the car park at the site with immediate effect.
Although the Trust did its best to keep the site open for as long as it could, this is no longer possible under current guidance. As always, the clifftop site will remain open all day every day to visitors on foot via the pedestrian gate, but the visitor facilities, including the car park, will be closed.
Visitors who enjoy the outside features at the site, including the National Memorial to the Few and the Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall – along with our replica Spitfire and Hurricane and the new Stuka art installation – are urged to donate to the charity using one of the collection boxes on site. The Trust receives no public funding, and with no cafe, shop or Scramble Experience income, donation are increasingly important.
