A free exhibition revealing the history of the Priory building in Orpington was unveiled at Bromley Museum last week.

It tells the story of the Grade II* listed rectory and its inhabitants over the past 1,000 years.

The news comes as work continues to finalise a second-stage application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for an extention of the museum and the creation of a heritage and arts hub.

Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “We have a great opportunity to maximise our exhibition space and showcase more of our significant collection following Orpington Library’s successful move to the town centre.

“Why not come along, find out more about the site’s rich history and famous past residents and have your say about the future of your museum.

“Your views will help us ensure that our plans represent what people want from their museum and help us create a heritage and arts destination of choice in the future.”
