Description

Tonight Brian Taylor gives a presentation on Grey Towers, Hornchurch, a large country mansion and its 85-acre grounds.
The property was vacant and had been put up for sale in June 1914 after its owners, Col. and Mrs Holmes had died.
It was decided that Grey Towers would be a suitable site for a military depot later used for a convalescent hospital for New Zealand troops.


Entrance donation is £3 and an optional £1.50 for the excellent cold buffet.
Drinks are available from the bar.

NON MEMBERS ARE ESPECIALLY WELCOME.

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
