Broadfield House in Crawley was our original home and served as a great place to broadcast from. Situated in the Broadfield Park nature reserve, it had an expense of grass behind it and a large lake beside it. 

This Grade II listed 19th century villa has had many uses over the years since it was constructed in 1830. It has been a drinking and country club (one of its visitors was John George Haigh - the infamous acid bath murderer and allegedly he met at least one of his victims there)



Queen Victoria is also known to have visited the villa during its days at the Radio Mercury head office and main studio site there was a large framed photograph of the occasion which used to dominate the reception area. The building was also used by the Crawley Development Coropration, so it is fair to say that the modern new town of Crawley was designed from the building during the late 1940's and 1950's

More recently it's been a school,  which has since closed and now, well the building is waiting for a new owner to love it.
