Winter Garden of former Avery Hill Training College, Bexley Road, Eltham SE9 - Greenwich

Large conservatory built in 1889 in a classical style, with domed glass roofs and surmounted by a figure of Mercury. The building is suffering from water ingress and considerable deterioration of the fabric. A previous initiative for repair and re-use was halted as the owner decided to market the wider site, including the Winter Garden, for sale. The Local Authority and Historic England have worked with the owner to secure urgent works to ensure that the building is wind and watertight whilst discussions continue to agree future management and use of the building.
