Funding for manor project
Fri 6 May 2016, 9:50 am
Headstone Manor Museum, a group of buildings dating back to 1310, has been awarded £3.6 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of a restoration project.
The Grade I-listed manor house building will be restored to create a permanent museum. A house and gardens attraction will also feature, as well as a new visitor center, with a cafe and shop. This will feature views of the only surviving 14th century water-filled moat in Middlesex.
The museum will be open throughout this process, with temporary exhibitions and public events scheduled to take place. The local history collection of books, newspapers, photographs, prints, historic and modern maps of Harrow and the surrounding area, is stored on site and available to review by appointment.
Other funding has been provided, including £1.75 million from Harrow Council with additional funds from John Lyon’s Charity, The Country Houses Foundation and others. This round of funding saw the 16th century Great Barn transformed into an events and functions venue.
