Orpington Priory housed the Bromley Museum until its doors were closed on 25 September 2015. The council now intends to place the building and surrounding land on the open market.
We are a community group and registered charity set up to try to preserve The Priory and continue its use as a community asset. Our vision is ‘… to ensure the future of Orpington Priory, and its conservation and restoration as an historic building, with increased public access.’ We want to persuade the council to let us run The Priory as an Arts & Heritage Centre, Community, Education and Business Hub which will be enjoyed by both the local and the wider community. We hope to provide Orpington with a much needed cultural centre with improved facilities, tea rooms, exhibitions and events.
