Well Hall Pleasaunce

Well Hall Pleasaunce

Wall Hall Pleasaunce is a haven of formal gardens, ponds and woodland.


Well Hall was once owned by William and Margaret Roper (the daughter of Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor), and the Tudor Barn was part of the outbuilding of the complex. In 1733 Sir Gregory Page bought the estate for £19,000 and demolished Roper House, building Page House in its place. The most famous tenant - and the last - was Mrs Hubert Bland, authoress who wrote under the pen name of Edith Nesbit. Both the Railway Children and the Treasure Seekers were written here by her.


There is Friends Group who help Royal Greenwich manage and maintain this beautiful area.
