Hall Place

Another visit to Hall Place, Bexley. Since I was last there the place has been done up and is rather more of museum than a function suite. There was also rather more interpretation.

From Travels around London

When the last occupant died, Bexley council were expecting to get a house they had already purchased and the contents which they hadn't. The tenant had instructed in her will that the contents were to be sold in aid of Coventry Cathedral, and they duly were sold to assist, no doubt, in the rebuilding. Most of the furnishing these days comes from Anne of Cleeves House in Lewes.
