A recently renovated 14th century manor is getting ready to re-open its doors with a free artisan fair.

Headstone Manor and Museum, in Pinner View, has undergone a four year transformation after it received funding from the National Lottery and Harrow Council.

The Frost Fair, which takes place on December 9 and 10 from 12pm to 5pm, will celebrate the £5.7 million investment which has allowed the manor to act as a tribute to Harrow.

There will be market stalls, children’s entertainment, seasonal food and music from a brass band.

Once re-opened, Headstone Manor’s programme will include free access to the museum, a dedicated learning centre in the 18th century granary and regular events on-site.

The museum will show the history of Harrow, through the eyes of the people of Headstone with a varied collection from across the ages, featuring video, audio, exhibits and more.

Cllr Sue Anderson, responsible for community, culture and resident engagement at Harrow Council, paid tribute to those who have poured their hearts and souls into revamping the site.

She said: “The transformation is incredible – you really feel the team has brought the manor back to life after more than a thousand years.

“It’s been a huge amount of hard work from everyone involved that has paid off wonderfully.

“To think that this place was once in danger of disappearing. It’s an achievement that every one of us can be so proud of, and a magnificent inspiration from the past in celebrating Harrow’s rich history as we build a better Harrow for the future.”

Her words were echoed by the head of Heritage Lottery Fund London, Stuart Hobley, who said it was “extremely satisfying” to see the project completed.

He said: “Headstone Manor Museum is looking wonderful and will provide an important resource for the people of Harrow.

“As we embark on the season of giving, its great National Lottery players have gifted their support to such a community-spirited project; we hope that many of them will come along to enjoy all that this new and innovative local museum has to offer.”
