Anne-Therese Scott-Abbot discovered that Broome Hall was on the market again (January 2004). I thought that you might like to see the selection of photos that was taken by the Estate Agents (Kenniston), who kindly allowed me to reproduce them here. Here is the response from the Managing Director :

" Dear Mr.West

Thank you for your e-mail.

The part for sale is just a third of the existing frontage of the building and there are now 8 individual houses and three flats. It is probably the only way a larger building of this nature can be maintained these days.

I have no objection to you copying the photo in question and you may be interested in the virtual reality tour.

I am aware of your Order in Africa when I worked for Barclays Bank. May I wish you and your collegues best wishes for the New Year. With kind regards

John Kenyon

Note : You may remember that Anne-Therese and her sister Susanne lived at Broome Hall in the sixties.
(You'll find photos that they lent us on Pages 31-34 of the Gallery).
