Delving into Bentley Priory’s illustrious past

Boxed Red creatives love nothing more than an invigorating debate about their marketing projects and were inspired by a recent discussion about the Bentley Priory site in Stanmore, near London.

The exclusive Barratt Homes development boasts a rich and diverse heritage, so members of the Bentley Priory Battle of Britain Trust kindly gave up their time to impart their knowledge about the estate and its life story.

Members of the Boxed Red team led an afternoon tea meeting at the Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire to gain an insight into the important and illustrious past of Bentley Priory and to ensure this rich history is reflected in the marketing strategy of the development and is embedded into the next chapter of its life.

Discussions about the architecture, World War II, the residence of Queen Adelaide and numerous notable visitors dominated the agenda, sparking off ideas about potential street and house names for the development.

Craig Fell, creative director at Boxed Red Marketing, said:

“It was absolutely inspiring to hear about the amazing history at Bentley Priory.

“The estate has been through so many changes, and even a couple of world wars, so we are dedicated to making this intriguing past a huge part of Bentley Priory’s future.

“We are extremely grateful to the members of the Bentley Priory Battle of Britain Trust for sparing their time for us. Their input will prove invaluable when it comes to implementing our creative marketing strategy for the development.”
