About the event
HISTORY OF AVENUE HOUSE
Originally owned by the Bishop of London, the land on which Avenue House stands used to be known as Temple Croft Fields, after the Knights Templars who were granted it in 1243. From 1312 it belonged to the Knights Hospitallers until their estates were seized by Henry VIII in 1540.
In 1859, Rev. Edward Cooper, a relative of the Allen family, built a villa on the site, which later became known as Avenue House. It was bought in 1874 by Henry Charles (Inky) Stephens, son of the inventor of the famous blue-black ink. He died in 1918, bequeathing Avenue House to the people.
During the war the house was used as a hospital and there basement housed the morgue! The tower was used as a watch out for where the bombs were landing during the Blitz,
In 1989 the building was ravaged by fire, since then it has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished to retain its character.
