Broomfield Park carving

Broomfield Park in Enfield, once a Tudor merchant’s estate with grand house, stables, rabbit warren, parterres and lakes, opened to the public in 1903. A large Portland stone plaque in the shape of a shell commemorates those involved, but it had become illegible over the years. HOLT is supporting a project to restore it with the Broomfield House Trust – careful cleaning and repair of the stonework, and recutting the letters so they are readable for all passers-by.
