Rainham Hall

Rainham Hall is a charming and remarkably fine example of a Queen Anne house, built in 1729 by an enterprising merchant, the self-styled 'Captain' John Harle. The hall and its cluster of associated buildings were a focal point for his trading activities, which were a factor in the development of Rainham Village in the 18th century. It is a rare surviving witness of the river trade which forms an important part of local and regional history.The hall is nestled in the heart of Rainham village on the far eastern fringes of London. Surrounded by a contrasting landscape of big skies, wild marshland and thriving industry, Rainham Hall has been quietly biding its time. Now, with the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and grant funders, we're working on an exciting project to restore and open up this hidden piece of London’s history.
