Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial - Proposals

Postby Hihonyr8811 » Sun Apr 07, 2013 1:51 pm

(Apologies if this has been posted else where, I did a search and the only thing that came up was the one in London.)

http://www.lincsbombercommandmemorial.c ... r-say.html

Anyone have any opinions?

At first glance I didn't like any of them, but after reading the descriptions and clicking on the "view more" button, I like two of them. So I haven't voted (yet).

I felt the same way.

I like the search light concept, with the names along the walkway though.

I like 'The View Home' one.
Wasn't too keen on the other two.
Thank you very much for posting the link Helen :ymapplause:.

So they've announced a winner, and funnily enough it was the one I didn't like (or vote for) :))

Same here. Didn't like that one or the other one with the spires.

Out of all of them I preferred the 'Lens' but none of them really struck me.

I can't say I particularly like the spire memorial but I do like the design for the centre and kudos to Lincoln County Council and the BC Memorial Team and the public for making this happen - it good to see something worth while outside the capital.

Its only fitting that Bomber County has a Bomber Command memorial its been a long time coming in my view.
