TQ4767 : Kevington Hall

taken 13 years ago, near to St Mary Cray, Bromley, England

Kevington Hall
Kevington Hall
Built in 1767-9 for Herman Behrens, a wealthy merchant trader from Amsterdam, based in London. The designer was Sir Robert Taylor. It remained in the Behrens (later Berens) family, seeing some additional building, until the Second World War when it was requisitioned by the government to house Canadian troops. After the war, it was bought by Kent County Council and used as a primary school until the 1980s. In 1987 it was sold into private hands, and the owners have been working on its restoration.

It is grade II* listed - for listing particulars see LinkExternal link (which still shows it as a school).
