Hall Place is a stunning Tudor house with magnificent gardens sitting on the banks of the River Cray in Bexley and, very importantly, the base of the North West Kent Countryside Partnership!
The site is owned and managed by London Borough of Bexley, who took over its running in April 2017.
NWKCP carries out regular river enhancements on the Cray at Hall Place in the form of hazel spiling along the margins, and pulling up the invasive Himalayan Balsam which likes to grow along its banks.
We are also currently running a Tesco-funded project to reinstate Hall Place’s defunct herb garden.Throughout 2017 and 2018 we will be working with many different community groups and volunteers to move herbs from their old, disused site at the far end of the gardens and to propagate and re-plant them in their new home – a former RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden right at the front of the house. As a part of this project we will also be offering training in wildlife gardening and horticultural techniques, and finishing off with a celebratory launch day. If you would like to get involved in the herb garden project, please contact us.
