Headstone Manor and Museum secures Heritage Lottery Fund support

headstone_manorHarrow Council has received initial support for a £3.6 million bid from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the ‘Headstone Manor at the Heart of our Regeneration’ project. The project will completely restore the medieval building of Headstone Manor, and its associated 16th Century Small Barn and 18th Century Granary.

From March 2017, the Manor House will operate as a museum telling the history of Harrow through the story of the site and our 5,000 piece collection. A visitor centre, shop and café will be developed in the Small Barn, and a dedicated learning centre in the Granary.

The Great Barn is being refurbished as a functions venue to generate the income that will subsidise future revenue costs for the site.

Development funding of £255,000 has been awarded immediately, to help progress plans in order to secure the full grant in 2014. The first phase of the scheme is the restoration of the Great Barn, which Harrow Council is providing £850,000 for. This will be completed by November 2014.
