Charlton House is one of the finest surviving Jacobean manor houses in England.

The house was built with great precision to detail, both inside and out, using red brick which was characteristic of the time, with white stone dressing. The imposing oak fireplace in the Jenkins Room bears the date 1612.

Extensive renovations were carried out in the 1830’s by Sir Thomas Maryon-Wilson, including installing a bathroom, wardrobe rooms and then later the minstrel gallery.

Charlton House played a vital role during the First World War. As the Divisional Headquarters of the Red Cross for Greenwich and Woolwich, working parties raised funds for the war effort and supported the soldiers at the front by collecting gifts and donations. Lady Maryon-Wilson stood as Vice President.

By 1918, four years of hard continued fighting had taken its toll & led to huge numbers of wounded. Hospitals were full. In response, Sir Spencer and Lady Maryon-Wilson gave the Red Cross free use of their Jacobean home. Rooms that were once occupied by the family were turned into wards as the house was fitted out with new and donated furniture. On 14th October 1918, the house opened as an Auxiliary Hospital to help soldiers convalese at Charlton House. There were eighteen wards throughout the house with around seventy beds. During its time as a hospital, over one hundred and sixty men were admitted to Charlton House. On 30th April 1919 the House closed as a hospital.

Over the years several mysterious sightings have been reported at Charlton House including the presence of a man on the original wooden staircase and the bones of a boy were found when installing a lift by the second staircase.

This is sure to be an interesting evening at Charlton House!  Dare you join Fright Nights London?
