Mansion House at Beckenham Place Park – 19 November 2016
Sydney Thornbury, who has run the Conservatoire at Blackheath Halls and the Bussey Building in Peckham, has taken over the management of the building. She has plans for community use of the Mansion House. For now, she has arranged for complimentary tea and coffee to be available at the Mansion House for park visitors.
Sydney is running the building on a temporary basis following its vacation by Glendale Golf. This will ensure the building is kept secure and looked after while the first stage of restoration takes place in the park. You can follow Sydney on Twitter @bppmansion.

Lewisham Council have set up a Facebook page to share information about the ongoing changes happening in Beckenham Place Park and to promote future events, activities and volunteering opportunities. Just ‘like’ the page to keep up with the park’s progress.”

One Response to Lewisham Council Proposals for Refurbishment of Beckenham Place Park

  1. Thanks for a comprehensive post and for posting the link to the ICR report which censured Lewisham’s presentation of the 2014 consultation results to Heritage Lottery Fund (i.e. to make them appear more supportive of a decision to close golf) and HLF’s failure to spot that this was the case.
