A house designed by Thomas Worthington while still a pupil under the supervision of Henry Bowman. Bowman leased the house for a period of twenty-one years. On the expiry of the lease in 1869 it was purchased by Thomas Worthington as his own residence. Four years later, on 10 October 1873 Worthington married Edith Emma Swanwick (1847–1942), the 26-year-old daughter of the man who had rented Broomfield from Henry Bowman from its completion in 1847.  Edith thus returned to her childhood home.
