Could today be the day that Broomfield House’s fortunes finally begin to turn around?
Earlier today Enfield Council, in partnership with the Broomfield House Trust and Friends of Broomfield Park, formally submitted their four million pound bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the house to its former glory. The aim is to restore the House as faithfully as possible to its nineteenth century appearance, without the mock Tudor facade which was added in the 1930s.
A new website, www.broomfieldhouse.org, has been set up to support the bid and tell the story of the house.
A decision on the bid is expected in February 2013.
