2nd Visit to Eltham Park Estate

On Glenesk Road

ACS Secretary Ben Honeybone led a walk around the Eltham Park Estate on Sunday 7th July 2024. It featured the site of the original Eltham Park mansion; a contender for ‘last ever Corbett house to be built’; the transition from more classical designs with gothic architectural features to the Arts and Crafts styles of Glenesk Road; the original Eltham Park station building, and the home of a rather famous early resident.

The weather was rather changeable…
