WELCOME TO WEST HOUSE
West House is a centre for the community in Pinner Memorial Park. The people of Pinner raised the money to buy it as a memorial to the fallen of two world wars. It fell into disrepair, but again local people banded together to restore it. Michael Rosen, who was brought up in Pinner and is a Patron, reopened it in 2010. The house is run by The West House and Heath Robinson Museum Trust, a registered charity No 1086567.
The Trustees are delighted to announce that the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded £1.3 million to help build a new Museum to William Heath Robinson, who lived in Pinner. Please see our News Page to find out what is happening.
If you would like to volunteer your skills, we have plenty of opportunities to be part of this project, which will mean so much to Pinner and to fans of Heath Robinson. Follow this link for more details.
We still need £127,000 before we can build it, and you can help. Make a donation online here to build this exciting new facility.
