broomfield house memories wanted croppedbroomfield house memories wanted

The Broomfield House Trust and Enfield Museum Service have agreed to hold a joint exhibition, "Hidden Treasures: Revealing Broomfield House", at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield from 23 July 2018 until 6 January 2019.

The Broomfield House Trust will be using donations and a grant from the Enfield Society to fund the restoration and display of the Minerva panel of the Lanscroon Murals, which will be the centre piece of the display. We are awaiting formal permission from Enfield Counci,l who "own" the mural, and Historic England, who guard its listed status, before our chosen restorers, Arte Conservation, can move the sections to their studios in Faversham to begin their painstaking restoration.

We continue to seek donations to cover the costs of this whole exercise. Donations can easily made through BTMydonate on our websites on Facebook - "Broomfield House and the Lanscroon Murals" - and at

Stacey Bagdi is the energetic organise of the exhibition and she is appealing for items and memories connected with the park and house - see the poster.

Broomfield House and Park: Your memories wanted!

Being undoubtedly the most important artefacts from the park’s long history, I understand the curator is already considering how to best represent the handbill and witches bottles, key elements of the Palmers Scream, in the exhibition.

If it’s possible to obtain an early return of the scroll itself, currently undergoing testing at the British Museum of Curiosities, then hopefully that too – both sections - will form an integral part of this event.

(Readers not familiar with the witches’ bottles can watch a brief explanatory video, available on . Note that this will be one of the very few time since their discovery that the bottles will be available to be seen outside of their protective box.)
