The gardens in the heart of Rainham are now open to the public after a restoration project led by Havering Council.

The Council secured £250,000 regeneration funding from the Government and Veolia North Thames Trust, in partnership with the National Trust, to complete the project.

The two acres of gardens are hidden from view of the road and surround Rainham Hall, which is also undergoing a restoration project and due to reopen in summer 2015.

Cllr Michael Armstrong, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Rainham Compass, said: “We are lucky to live in one of the greenest boroughs in London and I am really pleased that these beautiful gardens surrounding the Hall are open for everyone to enjoy, just in time for the summer.

“The gardens are an asset to the historic village, which has some impressive heritage sites and has benefitted from investment over the past few years.”

The gardens will be open every Tuesday and Friday from 10am to 4pm.
