Common Sites – Common Sounds
Rachel Cheer grew up in the 80s during the Cold War in Greenham.
About the Exhibit
At this time USAF Greenham Common was the home of the nuclear missile and Greenham was surrounded by Peace women. The Common was out of bounds and we would stand and watch F1-11 planes take off and land. An area that was known as a place of possible war was eventually returned to public use and we tore down the fences. In 2000 the Common was re-opened. The Common is now a place of new life, of hope for the future of community, but also of remembrance of the time when we lived in a time of uncertainty.
Common Sites – Common Sounds captures the sound of the life on the Common, with photographs of the relics that are dotted around and the common in all its wonder.
