St George’s Chapel of Remembrance

St George’s Chapel of Remembrance


Biggin Hill, United Kingdom (GB)
This brick built chapel was built in 1951, to replace an earlier chapel destroyed by fire, and now serves as a memorial to all the aircrew who died flying from the Biggin Hill Sector. It is surrounded by a garden of remembrance and has gate guardians in the form of full-sized replicas of a Hurricane and a Spitfire, representing the aircraft that flew from the former airfield during the Battle of Britain. The replicas replaced genuine aircraft which formerly served as the guardians.
