Beddington Park and The Grange HLF Project

In July 2016 Sutton Council were successfully awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery Funds to deliver a £3.7m project to restore, conserve and enhance Beddington Park.

This project was part of a commitment from Sutton Council to have projects which are commissioned by residents to improve their environment.

The project includes:

  • improvements to entrances
  • improvement to access and parking
  • installation of interpretation panels
  • restoration and improvements to the Grange Garden (to include an apple orchard)
  • development of a new garden space in the churchyard extension
  • dredging and improvement works to the lake and stock pond
  • the enlargement and improvement of the children’s playground
  • For more information on the proposals, please view the Beddington Park HLF Project Design Plans.

The project will also involve the delivery of a 3 year programme of activities and events, set to include a range of walks and talks, children’s activities, exercise programmes, art and theatre events as well as a volunteer programme providing training and volunteer opportunities throughout the park.

Works are due to begin late 2016 and continue throughout 2017, with completion anticipated by early 2018. Check back here for further information on the project as it progresses, follow us on Twitter or receive regular updates by joining our mailing list.

There are a number of large elements to the project which will result in disruption within the park, including closed pathways, and inevitably the park will look far from its best during the course of the works. We ask you to please be patient with the look of the park during this time. It will only be for a few months and we hope that you can look forward to the finished result.

For further information on the project or to get involved, please contact the Project Support and Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Price. sarah.price@sutton.gov.uk.
