A plaque was unveiled to commemorate the proud military history of our Chiltern region’s Millbrook Park development in Mill Hill, Barnet.
The marker honours one of the delicately refurbished Edwardian buildings which was once an officer’s mess as part of the Inglis Barracks – home for many years to the Middlesex Regiment.
Latterly it provided a base for the Army Postal Service and the British forces Post Office. The site’s regeneration means it now hosts one and two-bedroom apartments – all sold out – alongside a superb collection of family houses set for launch later this year.
The plaque was unveiled by the Deputy Lieutenant of Barnet, Martin Russell, who said: “This substantial building is a proud testament to the loyal military heritage of this place: a fine building with a completely new residential purpose following its renovation.”
Linden Homes Chiltern managing director Darren Maddox added: “This plaque pays tribute to the strong heritage associated with this site and the Inglis Barracks.
“At Linden Homes, we are always keen to invest back into the communities we build. At this site alone, we have created 63 jobs and had two apprentices working on site; demonstrating that we when build, we look to build local homes by local people.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
