Devastating news on Broomfield bid

The sad saga of Broomfield House looks set to continue following news this week that the Heritage Lottery Fund bid to restore the 16th century building has been turned down.

According to reports from Enfield Today this evening, the refusal was due to HLF’s concerns about the scale of the restoration project, the level of the grant which had been requested (£4.175 million), and the long-term sustainability of the project, combined with the sheer number of applications received in the current round.

The fear is that, without support from the fund, it will now be almost impossible for the restoration to proceed.  The question: what next for Palmers Green’s oldest building?
