Eastbury Manor
Barking
Eastbury Manor House dates from c. 1566 and is now situated incongruously in the middle of a 1930’s housing estate. Acquired by the National Trust In 1918 with support from the SPAB, the house is leased to the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Since the 1990’s, Richard Griffiths Architects have helped transform the house from a little appreciated building to one well-loved and heavily used by the local community. The house has been fully repaired and re-serviced to accommodate a wide variety of uses with the funding assistance from the HLF. A new oak-clad structure to one spiral stair; was constructed on the site of the collapsed Tudor original, together with a new platform lift give access to all levels. A new kitchen garden has been created following the evidence of early maps.
