A permanent women’s peacecamp surrounded Greenham Common Air Force Base throughout the 1980s and into the nineties. The Greenham common lands had been deeded to the American Air Force for the purpose of storing cruise missiles loaded with nuclear warheads. The women protested at the base for over a decade, and at various times cut through the wire fencing and were arrested. Greenham was a touchpoint and a rallying site for the nationwide British peace protests of the late cold war era. Artist, potter, and activist Elspeth Owen shares her memories of the times.
