Discover the intriguing tales and fascinating facts of Harrow’s History with free museum entry and a host of exhibitions, family activities and community events at Headstone Manor & Museum!
After several years of National Lottery Heritage Fund restoration work you can now explore the Small Barn; discovering what Harrow was like before the Headstone Manor we know today was built in 1310. Your journey into Harrow’s history continues in the Manor House.
The Grade 1 listed Manor House now tells the many tales of the people who once lived there, as well as the history of the whole Harrow area. As you travel through the house from the most recently built parts to the oldest, you will travel back in time, ending up in the early medieval house which still stands as an astonishing part of Harrow’s early history.
For those who are more interested in the architecture of this fascinating site, the complex Manor House has been carefully restored to show the many changes which have taken place over the centuries. You can also see the discoveries made during the restoration works themselves.
The Granary now hosts our Learning Centre. With everything from The Art Cart and dressing up (to which our younger visitors can help themselves!) to our extensive programme of Tuesday Talks.
Finally, The Great Barn is now home to our events venue providing an elegant, historic setting for weddings and parties.
