Honeywood House, situated on the banks of the picturesque Charshalton Ponds in South West London is to open its doors once more and welcome back visitors to what is considered one of the most treasured heritage attractions in the Sutton area.
Originally built in the 17th Century, Honeywood House has had its fair share of additions most notably in 1896 and 1903 when the house was owned by London merchant John Pattinson Kirk. In need of restoration the museum closed in 2011 after successfully gaining a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to begin work on making the museum even more of a focal point in the London Borough.
With restoration almost complete the new exhibition rooms are really taking shape. Located in the north corridor of the 17th Century part of the building the rooms include a scullery, an Edwardian children’s room and finally a room dedicated to World War Two.
