We are the “Friends Of Valentines Mansion” in the London Borough of Redbridge. We work to raise awareness of the mansion and its potential to the local community. We raise money and support the preservation and improvement of this beautiful restored building set within Valentines Park near Gants Hill. We also continue to research and share knowledge of its history.
We were established in 2000 and played a vital role in securing Heritage Lottery funding for its restoration following its decline during the years it was used as council office space.
We currently have a project to develop the Raymond Room reflecting the period 1754-1788 when the house was owned by Charles Raymond.
Many individuals, groups and organisations have been and are still involved with Valentines Mansion, Gardens and Park. Find out here about the Valentines Park Conservationists and our other Partners .
