Well Hall Pleasaunce

Wall Hall Pleasaunce 'is a haven of formal gardens, ponds and woodland.

Well Hall was once owned by William and Margaret Roper (the daughter of Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor), and the Tudor Barn was part of the outbuilding of the complex. In 1733 Sir Gregory Page bought the estate for £'19,000 and demolished Roper House, building Page House in its place. The most famous tenant - and the last - was Mrs Hubert Bland, authoress who wrote under the pen name of Edith Nesbit. Both the Railway Children and the Treasure Seekers were written here by her.

There are twice-monthly ranger walks on the first Wednesday of the month at 10.30am and the second Sunday of each month at 2pm. Meet opposite the Co-op in Well Hall Road. Full details of these, and other events can be found on their website.
