Bromley Council has appointed specialist firm Caroe Architecture to draw up detailed designs for the extension of Bromley Museum.

Bromley Museum: Improvements thanks to heritage grant

The work is in preparation for a second-stage grant application for the scheme from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Success would allow for the creation of a bigger arts and heritage hub at the current museum, which is housed at the grade II-listed Orpington Priory.

Among the objectives of the scheme are the reinstatement of the green court in front of the building, improved access with new interconnecting spaces throughout the facility, the creation of a reception area, a café, toilets and the installation of a lift.

Bromley regeneration lead Peter Morgan said the museum proposals were progressing well.

“We are excited to see the project moving ahead towards transforming the museum into an arts and heritage destination of choice with the architects starting work,” he said.
