The Grade 2 listed Ice House in Bromley Palace Park (aka Civic Centre) has had to be partly fenced off to combat repeated damage by vandals. As heritage fencing could not be found it was necessary to use a modern design instead. The sympathetic repair of the roof and buttresses remains to be carried out. Heritage England have identified this and some other listed garden features as at risk.
Beltane cross found.
During a recent walk by our group we came across these unusual objects adjacent to the Grade 2 listed Pulhamite garden feature in Bromley Palace Park (aka Civic Centre Grounds). This included a ‘St.Brigid’s Cross’ celebration of spring. Let us hope that the weather proves otherwise!

Newsshopper has reported that L.B.Bromley plans to sell large parts of their Civic Centre. While aware that this is mentioned in the Bromley Town Area Action Plan (BTAAP) we remain concerned at the implications to the associated public open space Bromley Palace Park, including retaining public access. This is a delightful place with a number of officially listed features. We will continue to campaign to retain this quality park for public use.
