Itโ€™s Star Wars Day!!

Did you know we had #Stormtroopers visit #Fortyhall last year?

They made sure an #AntiquesRoadshow guest who had brought some #StarWars memorabilia arrived safety to see the expert, and did a great job. If you missed the episode, it is still available to view on BBCiPlayer http://ow.ly/tHsI50EElIt

Watch out for the third episode of Antiques Roadshow which was filmed at Forty Hall Estate coming soon on BBC 1!

As March is #NationalBedMonth we thought we would give you a little fact about #17th century living.

Sir Nicholas was kept warm in his bed at night by the heat rising from the kitchen directly below.

This was a popular way to ensure the Lord and Lady of the house had a warm bedroom during the early 17th century.

Have you seen the fabulous new mural on the window of the #Dugdale Centre in #Enfield Town yet?

Can you spot Forty Hall in the image?

It's hoped that 'The Hug' by local artist #KareenCox will provide Enfield residents with inspiration and joy, to celebrate the creativity and resilience of the borough and provide a giant symbol of hope in the coming months.

Kareen said: "I wanted to feature Forty Hall as itโ€™s such a recognisable building in Enfield."

To the brilliant man who so kindly found my phone at dusk on the outer path, while I frantically ran around carrying my 2yo searching for it - THANK YOU SO MUCH! Iโ€™d had a terrible day and you restored my happiness. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Also thank you for being a top human and calling my mum to let her know youโ€™d found it. Merry Christmas โค๏ธ

Lovely autumn day.
Hi All, As the restrictions are being lifted and Forty Hall & Estate are now in a position to allow visitors again, I want to share with you some of the beautiful photos I captured of a familyโ€™s visit last year. As the weather is now warming up, I personally canโ€™t wait to take my family there again, especially after discovering you can hire bikes to get around the park. Now I donโ€™t have to hear that heart sinking statement โ€œdaddyโ€ฆmy legs are tiredโ€™. I saw in an earlier post that social distancing was managed really well, which is great to hear. So, if you havenโ€™t been to Forty Hall before, hopefully these photos will encourage you to visit.
