Garden House to north west of Charlton House, Charlton Road, Charlton SE7 - Greenwich

Small red brick garden house with undercroft and high pyramidal swept roof, dating from the mid to late C17 and attributed to Inigo Jones. It was previously used as a public lavatory, but is now vacant. A condition survey and heritage assessment commissioned by the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust is now informing a programme of works to restore and re-use the building. The first phase of enabling works has been granted Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission, and these works are now underway.
