The Shorncliffe Trust is working towards creating a unique Heritage and Education Centre dedicated to the history and legacy of the modern British Army from its birthplace, Shorncliffe.
Shorncliffe has been on the frontline of this country for over 200 years and has a unique history that is tied into world history events from the Napoleonic wars through two World Wars. It is rare to find one military site in the world that has influenced and changed so much about the way today’s soldiers fight and operate on battlefields in the 21st century.
The Heritage Centre at Shorncliffe will examine the Garrison’s military history and the impact (both social and cultural) the army camp made over the centuries both locally and internationally.
Shorncliffe has welcomed nationalities from around the world and in this corner of Kent, hosted royalty and leaders from across the world.
The Shorncliffe Trust is a Registered Charity; Number 1152185
