New windows to the past

Over 1,700 people visited Headstone Manor and Museum when it reopened at the end of 2017, thanks to a £3.6 million National Lottery grant and £2.1 million from Harrow Council.
All four of the historic buildings are open for the first time, revealing the area’s history through a varied collection from across the ages combined with high tech displays.
Stuart Hobley, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) London said: "It's extremely satisfying to witness the completion of this project.
"Headstone Manor Museum is looking wonderful and will provide an important resource for the people of Harrow.
"A new stained glass window depicting scenes from Harrow’s past is a new feature; it was created by students and volunteers in a project to record the story of Whitefriars glass and its Harrow factory."
