Manor-sent: Headstone Manor Park gets £1.5m to create a greener landscape for everyone

Headstone Manor Park is about to become even greener and greater – thanks to a £1.5million heritage grant.

There will soon be a wetland area, more trees and plants providing greater biodiversity and habitats, footpaths and bridges and play equipment for everyone to enjoy.

The Yeading Brook will also be restored which will help provide better flood protection for the museum buildings and improve water quality for the historic moat and park.

The news follows 18 months of consultation and open day events which have sought the views of local people, park users and friends groups about the park restoration proposals. Most of the work will be completed by March 2020 - with the exception of some planting that may be subject to seasonal constraints.

The latest funding comes from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
