The Hendon airfield and associated sites covered a huge section of the Colindale area. As part of our ongoing Historic Hendon project, we are , and have been, working with partners in the Colindale community to investigate, explore and interpret stories of the airfield from the people who first flew here in the early 1900s, all the way to our newest residents moving in today.  

Visitors are now invited to discover a new green heart of the community in Colindale reflecting the shape of RAF Hendon's historic airfield.

Our newly landscaped site includes:

Visitors can also listen to interviews of local residents and ex-service personnel talking about their experience in Hendon through three beautiful #tannoys designed in style of airfield tannoys of the 1930s or learn more about our site's history by sitting on one of two public seats that have embedded into their design imagery and stories of our site as suggested by members of our local community.
