About Harrington Hall

Built of a soft-pinkish brick, this long beautifully proportioned 17th century house presents a charming picture, the very epitome of the home of an English country gentleman of substance.

The Hall originally belonged to the Coppeldykes, who replaced the 14th century house with another early in the 16th century, only the Elizabethan porch survives from this house.

The main part of the house as we see it today, is a rebuild by Vincent Amcott, who purchased the house in 1673, he altered most of it save for the porch tower with its interesting pilasters dating from about 1660. He was also responsible for much of the panelling dating from that period.

Surprisingly, despite its great length, the house is only one room thick and mostly only the ground floor rooms are available for visitors.

Later, in the 1720's further alterations took place, fine Doric panelling was installed, and the lovely oak staircase with its carving of hops and wheat-ears dates from this time. Because of dry-rot the staircase had to be rebuilt in 1951, but luckily the carving remained unharmed. Nearly all of the rooms are panelled, with the drawing-room containing panelling from before 1700, making it the oldest in the house.

There is excellent furniture to be seen throughout, but the finest pieces are believed to be those in the drawing-room.

Harrington Hall lies in lovely grounds, the delightful semi-walled garden is known to be the Maud's garden in Tennyson's poem "Come into the Garden Maud". The famous poet lived nearby, it is often said that he was in love with Rose Baring of Harrington Hall.

The hall was once the home of Sir John Maitland, MP for Hornchurch from 1945-1964. Following a fire of 1991, the house was again restored by its current owner, Mr. David Price.

The garden is open to visitors on special days throughout the year.

When visiting take a look at St.Mary's Church, this possesses a tomb with a figure of a knight thought to date from around 1300, which is said to be Sir John Harrington. Also in the church are brass figures of the Coppeldyke family.
