Artist's Description

The present Ingress Abbey at Greenhithe in Kent was built following purchase of the land in 1831 by Alderman James Harmer who commissioned the architect Charles Moreing who reused stone from the old London Bridge in its construction. It cost £120,000 even then.

Areas of the grounds were sold off to Empire Paper Mills and the National Sea Training School and throughout the 20th Century the house was allowed to fall into decay.

With the eventual demise of the training school the grounds were sold off for development and the house restored as part of the contract costing £6 million.

It is now offices and sits looking down on the development as a proud survivor.
