Now open and running until 22nd April 2019. Opening Hours are Monday to Saturday: 10am – 6pm, Sunday: 10am – 6pm. Free entrance. A special feature on Broomfield House appeared in the Autumn 2018 newsletter.
An exhibition portraying the experiences of children at Forty Hall through subtle displays set in the period rooms to give a fascinating glimpse into the Hall’s past.
Throughout the centuries there have been children at Forty Hall; wealthy children have lived here and poorer children have worked here. In more recent years, children have come to enjoy events and activities, explore the house and play in the park.
Our next scheduled event will take place at 10am on Saturday morning 23rd March when we shall turn our attention to the Boundary Stream foot path in Ponders End. The meeting point will be the small car park adjacent to the former Boundary House public House which is at 3 High Street EN3 4EJ. This can be reached by way of the 191 bus from Enfield Town, alight at the Nightingale Road bus stop and the meeting point is then just a few moments walk back in the direction from which the bus has come.
with locally made handicrafts, food stalls, live music and craft activities for children. Free.
A talk by Michael Priaulx, Swift Conservation. The wildlife with which we’ve shared our towns and cities for centuries is disappearing fast. Swifts, sparrows, and starlings are all now officially “endangered” in the UK as we deck our gardens and convert our lofts. But find out how we can easily help these and other species, especially relevant now London is the World’s first National Park City.
