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.

A condition survey and heritage assessment commissioned by the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust is informing a programme of works to restore and re-use the building. Further enabling and investigative works are being carried out funded by Historic England.
