SIPSON

Surrounded by Heathrow, the M4 and the M25, the village of Sipson is never silent, with the constant rumble of cars and planes a backdrop to everyday life. Since 1998, the community has been under threat by the proposed expansion of Heathrow, which if approved, would see the village and its surrounding areas disappear. With Sipson's future still uncertain, many long-term residents have moved away, houses have been left neglected and local businesses are closing down, as a sense of community is being lost.
