Rainham Hall... a first visit

Rainham Hall in outer London is a National Trust property that has only just opened to the public.

Built for Captain John Harle in 1729 the property was transferred to the National Trust in 1949 who let it to various tenants, and it opened to the public in October 2015.

As a result of many tenants living there, none of the artefacts remain... and the rooms are surprisingly small for a Georgian House.  However, it was interesting to see.

A very clever model, where drawers are pulled out showing the layout of individual floors.

Interesting bath.....  :D

 and then a wander around the small garden....

The Stables cafe was well worth a visit for a welcome cuppa and nice fruity scone!!

Well worth a visit!! and be interesting to see how things develop and what further exhibitions there will be.
