Headstone Manor Museum, a group of buildings dating back to 1310, will be completely refurbished by Summer 2017 thanks to a £3.6 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and £1.75 million capital from Harrow Council, with additional funds from John Lyon’s Charity, The Country Houses Foundation and others. These monies have already transformed the 16th century Great Barn into an events and functions venue. The next phase will be to restore the historic grade I-listed Manor House creating a permanent museum of Harrow and a beautiful house and gardens attraction including the other historic barns on site. A new visitor center, with a cafe and shop, will be built with views of the only surviving fourteenth-century complete water-filled moat in Middlesex. The museum will be open throughout this process, offering a temporary exhibitions programme and public events. The Local History Collection of books, newspapers, photographs, prints, historic and modern maps of Harrow and the surrounding area is stored on site and available to review by appointment.
