Barnet 1471 Battlefields Society started this petition to Barnet Council

Barnet is the last major wars of the roses battlefield to be found and archaeological works to date have been unsuccessful. Support the Barnet 1471 Battlefield Society to protect our important heritage and save the Barnet Battlefield.

It has come to our attention following authorisation by Barnet Council that earthworks are being done at Old Fold Manor Golf Club digging up the battlefield and destroying the medieval landscape.

Historic England has said that despite this land being part of the registered battlefied it is on no importance.The Battle of Barnet Project organilly protested but have allowed the works to go ahead as GPRS showed nothing of significance.

We are petitioning for this works to the postpone until we can make sure an archaeologists is present.

The Barnet Society are just as worried as we are https://www.barnetsociety.org.uk/component/k2/earthworks-remodelling-barnet-golf-course?fbclid=IwAR1YOTlL_awccf-CH98_2oCAWHIaJS299_2_0gDEtEVOvVE1GqkQgy2U2Xg
