Farm shop proposal for Kenwood Stables
A historic stable block on the Kenwood House estate could be transformed into a farm shop selling food.
The Grade II listed Kenwood Stables are largely unused and require a lot of investment to bring them back into use.
From next week English Heritage will be looking for a commercial partner to transform it.
It would particularly like to see a farm shop, lifestyle shop, cafe or restaurant.
Alex Sydney, English Heritage’s head of historic properties in London, said: “We want to create a space where visitors can relax and enjoy themselves and we are now looking for a partner to help us deliver this vision.”

It is hoped the stables will be open by 2014.
They were built between 1794 and 1796 and lie north-east of Kenwood House, close to Hampstead Lane.
