ICKENHAM  HALL  -   Thursday 16 March 2017

This 18th century mansion was a private residence until 1947 when the then Middlesex County Council bought it. However the site has been farmed and occupied since pre-saxon times.  Even William the Conqueror can claim a place in the site’s history!  Over the centuries it has experienced many uses including school, arts centre, rehearsal
rooms and offices. A Make your own way trip.
