Victorian Folly of 'Medieval Ruins' in Bromley Palace Park, Rafford Way - Bromley

Folly with Norman style detailing, probably of mid-1860s and by the important firm of garden contractors, Pulham. The structure has been cleared of ivy and other woody vegetation which was seriously damaging the stonework and lime render. The Civic Centre complex has been designated a development site within the Bromley Town Centre Area Action Plan and it is expected that nearby development will fund repair of this heritage asset, amongst others.
