We are delighted to have completed the restoration of Headstone Manor and a new build visitors’ centre.
The buildings date from c1604 and the Borough of Harrow was very careful to choose a contractor with plenty of experience with Listed buildings. We were delighted to carry out the extensive rebuilding and repair of the grade 1 listed Manor House, using traditional lime plaster, hand-made bricks and peg tiles.
The manor has been furbished with period furniture and artefacts to become a living museum, and is now open to the public.
The Welcome Centre features a Glulam timber frame to reflect vernacular farm Cruik buildings, with cedar shingled roof, and compliments the ancient settlement.
The whole site is a scheduled Ancient monument, and indeed, we discovered a Roman road when laying pipework for the Biomass boilers.
