From the past to the future
Located in a landscape dominated by modern industry and infrastructure, Rainham Hall, is like a time-capsule – a place in which the ties of strong community and the traces of an earlier age are still tangible.
Rainham Hall was built when the Thames was the gateway to the world. We want Rainham Hall to become a gateway for people to discover more about the history of their area, to learn new skills, make new friends, and have fun.
Our restoration project
We are undertaking a major restoration project to restore and bring to life the Hall, its Stableblock and the Coach House. Building work started in February 2014 and should be completed by our opening in summer 2015.
We successfully applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of £1.46 million which combined with grants from Veolia North Thames Trust and Biffa Award , has allowed us to push ahead with delivering an exciting project built on understanding, community involvement and innovation.
