I just came back from the Van Lennepweg, the house on the corner Van Lennep(No.17) has been demolished and a total new out of style villa has been built there, the hedge is also gone, so be aware for September :cry:
I have spoken to the owner, and wil have a look with the detector in the garden tomorrow, but have not much hope as they also are working in the garden too.

When you get permission from the council and as there was a house on the ground, you get permission to get a new one, however one should think, that it had to be one in the old fashion style like the most you see in Oosterbeek, but money can buy anything these days

Have to put it down to 'progress' I'm afraid Kate, as much as such places mean to veterans and historians, and as grateful as the Dutch are for those that gave their lives I'm afraid we can't expect time to stand still in what is after all a prosperous residential area. Things have to change eventually and unfortunately I've been to many a battlefield thats now a housing estate, car park or factory. We can no more expect the Dutch to live their lives around history than we can expect people in this country to worry about the battlefields of 200 or 2000 years ago. Thats the great thing about the freedom so many have sacrificed their lives for, most people can take it for granted. :wink:

I just find it all so sad,I know things have to move on, but surely they should wait until it's out of living memory?
Maybe I'm just a silly sentimental woman

There's nothing wrong with being upset by stuff like this, but just think how long ago it would have happened if it had been in the UK, I'd be surprised if it had lasted much past the 1970's, and if this was France they'd probably be trying to do it to the cemetaries and memorials! It's a shame that the architectural style of the area couldn't be maintained though, but as said, money can buy you many things, including freedom from pesky social responcibility.

Just trying to picture which house it is, can you clarify which one it is in relation to the one with Jim Swan and the others collecting supplies. It is indeed a pity to see things like this happen, but the men who fought and died their did so to bring normality and peace back to the area and part of that normality is progress - I am sure they wouldnt want to see the place locked in a time warp. I hope they are being careful how they work in the garden - I am sure their are still too many of the Border boys lying in those Gardens.

If the weather is oke tomorrow, I will make a photograph, you know the spot from the dead German/
then you go towards the Utrechtseweg then its the 1st house on the left.

They pulled to house but found nothing, as they were aware of the situation ,most change I think will be beside the row, but have understand that there wil be no diggin on the place of the hedge

Let alone in my country :roll: Not much doesn't get demolished or built over to put up more shopping centers we don't need because the one across the street just closed down.... Sigh... if only I could live in a giant time capsule of sorts!!! :shock:

And no, Kate... not at all silly ;-)

AHA! That corner..

I remember it having been cleared and fenced off last September, and thinking "I wonder what's left in there."

Cheers for the photos Philip.

Nice house, but hardly in keeping - I would have thought their would be certain rules about following certain design styles in the area. Is the house for sale? I can always dream and start buying lottery tickets again. I will check Jim Swans sketch maps again but I am sure he told me C Company had their HQ at the near corner of the Garden early on - his guard section was just to the left covering the small lane.

No the owners bought the old one, pulled it down for this one, have checked the garden, but there was nothing, all the stuff came from the front, near the road
