Palmers Green Tales and an Original film of Broomfield Park, House and it’s environs from the late 1960’s

This film is a compilation of original films made by Jacques during the late 1960’s.  The film shows Broomfield Park and the House in all it’s glory,  the boating lake with it’s model boats, people bowling and playing tennis in their whites and concerts at the bandstand. It also shows the conservatory and the original playground with it’s very high slide.

lovely comment from a you tube viewer

What a wonderful piece of social history from my past. I remember the model boats so well, My mother told me when I was 3 years old I tried to wade into the pond and grab one with mum in hot pursuit. good times.

  1. Wonderful memories come flooding back of the little museum that was inside Broomfield House and the wonderful staircase in the entrance hall. Not forgetting the running track and the changing room in the old air-raid shelter, which both my brother and I used when we were members of the Southgate Harriers in the early 1970’s.

    Hope they find the money to rebuild the house. Funny thing is I can’t remember the bandstand by the lake and the conservatory, so, I must find the time to visit the park soon.

    • Thanks for your lovely comment, really pleased you enjoyed the film and it brought back such great memories. Don’t suppose you have any photos of the park? We would be very pleased to display them on the site if you do. I don’t know anything about the changing room in the old air raid shelter, where was it?
