A restored 16th century barn at Headstone Manor, once briefly owned by Henry VIII, hosted its first wedding after undergoing a £1 million makeover.
The Great Barn is the first building to be revamped in a programme to bring the unique estate back into use. The investment allowed urgent repairs to be carried out to the roof and installed new doors, heating and lighting.
Restoration to the medieval moated manor house will create a museum for Harrow’s historic collections following the award of £3.6 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It will house artefacts from the former Kodak factory, Whitefriars glass factory and archeological remains from Roman times. It is scheduled to open in 2017.
The Granary building on the site will become a learning centre for families and schools to discover their own history in Harrow.
