Petitioning Ebbsfleet Development Corporation - Head of Design Simon Harrison and 7 others

Bring back the bear pit at Rosherville, Kent.


0 have signed. Let’s get to 500.

The bear pit still exists almost intact under a few meters of soil. It can be unearthed, restored and be made accessible as a real heritage asset and a living memory to future generations of the Victorian Rosherville Gardens.

Current re-development proposals want to leave the pit 'protected' but we at Gravesend Futures and Friends of Rosherville have shown how easily it could be brought back (see & follow 'Gravesend Futures' on facebook) and how it could be a place making element within the new community.

Please sign the petition to raise awareness and tip the balance to restore-and-reveal rather than bury-and-remember.

(Of course, no live bears would be featured in the restored attraction....but an appropriate sculpture might).
