Bretons Through Time – the story of a surviving Havering Manor House

Bretons Through Time – the story of a surviving Havering Manor House- will transfer from Bretons House to South Hornchurch Library on Thursday 14th November and will remain there until 8th December.

Bretons can be traced back at least as far as 1160 and was an important manor in the district into the nineteenth century and is connected with interesting characters from Havering’s past.  Find out about the first tenant of the Romford Sewage Farm, William Hope, one of the first recipients of the Victoria Cross, and view a reproduction of the 1855 painting by Louis William Desanges commemorating his brave action, courtesy of The Fusilier Museum London.
