Pulhamite waterfall, Stockwell Close, Bromley Palace Park - Bromley

Pulhamite rockwork garden feature constructed circa 1865 as part of the improvements to the gardens of Bromley Palace that had been acquired by Coles Child, a wealthy coal merchant. The waterfall is at the southern end, adjacent to a probably late C18 ice house, and is in need of repair. Vegetation clearance has taken place but structural works are needed. Historic England, the Local Authority, and Friends of Bromley Town Parks and Gardens are in early discussions to develop a suitable project to secure the necessary conservation works.
