I remember the Baby Clinic they had in Broomfield.  You went up the beautiful stair case past the stunning paintings and your baby was weighed and then prodded by a doctor wearing rubber gloves whose finger nails were so long they poked through the top of them!  Weird, but we are all still in good health.

A simply beautiful film that captures so much of Broomfields interesting history.  Thanks for making it.

A wonderful film. Thank you so much for sharing Broomfield park with us.  It is wonderful that the community are now working together to bring the park alive again.

Our school (St Michael at Bowes, Tottenhall Road) used run it's sports days at Broomfield Park track.

In the days before elf and safety, there used to be a frighteningly high slide in the playground.

I remember the (braille labelled) scented garden, my Grandfather's name on the war memorial and frequently being told off by the 'parkie' for riding my bike.
