Images taken over several seasons. Hall Place is a stunning Tudor house with magnificent gardens sitting on the banks of the River Cray in Bexley. Bexley Council now run having taken over from independent charity Bexley Heritage Trust.
Hall Place was built in 1537 for Sir John Champneys, a wealthy merchant and former Lord Mayor of London. The house was extended in 1649 by Sir Robert Austen, a merchant from Tenterden in Kent. The house is a Grade I listed building and Scheduled Ancient Monument, and surrounded by a 65-hectare award winning garden. It is situated on the A223, Bourne Road, south of Watling Street (A207) and north of the 'Black Prince' interchange of the A2 Rochester Way and the A220. The only thing that spoils it is the constant and increasing road noise. Such a shame. It should be a peaceful place to enjoy.
