The refurbished Manor Farm Library is part of the historic Manor Farm site, and has lots of new features.
Manor Farm is Hillingdon's flagship heritage and culture site and houses a unique collection of community spaces, historic buildings, archaeological remains and landscape features set in 22 acres of beautiful grounds.
The site is centred on the remains of a pre-Norman Motte and Bailey fort and, following funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, now boasts a modern 'interpretation centre' which opens the history of the site to the general public.
Manor Farm is also plays host to craft workshops featuring a range of crafts from pottery to leatherwork, the Cow Byre art gallery and tea rooms, out and indoor events and a well equipped public library, all of which are free entry.
With the Winston Churchill Hall providing a 350 seat theatre and the Great Barn delivering unequalled 12th century charm, Manor Farm Site is also a leading venue for private hire; catering for weddings, conferences, concerts and shows.
Manor Farm Site is located at the north end of Ruislip High Street, close to public transport links and has ample public and private parking.
