Well Hall Pleasaunce, Eltham SE9
Well Hall Pleasaunce, Eltham SE9
Part of the moat and the rear elevation of the Tudor barn. A small hamlet on the road (track?) from Eltham to Woolwich was all that existed here during medieval times. "Kidbrooke layne" bisected the hamlet and at its southern corner stood Well Hall House plus its out-buildings. The outbuildings included this carefully preserved Tudor barn. The manor house has long been demolished, although this moat also survives. The barn - now a restaurant, with a first floor function suite - was built c.1525 by William Roper, the son in law of Sir Thomas More. A brook enters the moat by the clumps of reeds in the distance. Several entrances into this public park lie ahead, as does Well Hall Road (the A205).
