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.
