Buildings in Beckenham Place Park

There are several historic buildings within Beckenham Place Park, which require significant investment to make full use of them once again.

The Mansion House

The Mansion House is a Grade II* listed Georgian building that is open to the public every day. It has a long history and has been through many different owners, some of whom you can read about online or in the Local History Library. The Mansion House is currently managed by Copeland Park. They are working with us to make the most of this space and they offer a wide range of activities and events to the community.

In the long term we are hoping to obtain significant funds to fully restore the Mansion House.  

Foxgrove Club

The Foxgrove Club was built as the golf course club house in the 1920s. It became a private social club when the club house relocated to the Mansion House after the war. We have now made funds available for its repair, to enable it to be let out in ways that will complement the park and make the most of its surroundings.

Southend Lodge and the gatehouse

These two buildings flank the vehicle entrance to the park off Beckenham Hill Road. They are Grade II listed buildings and were externally restored as part of the Parks for People project in 2019.
Southend Lodge is used by the park’s grounds staff.

Gardener’s cottage

This Victorian cottage is the hub for volunteering in the park. A community garden has been created around the cottage, which is tended by volunteers who also get involved in woodland management, events and environmental education in the park.
To get involved in volunteering opportunities, please email bpp@lewisham.gov.uk.

The cottages

The cottages are adjacent to the stable block, forming the north side of the stable yard. The outside of these cottages has now been restored and internal refurbishment will be carried out soon. Once refurbished, they will be let out to in ways that complement the park.
Together, the cottages, the stable block, the old pig sty (now used for storage) and the stable yard form the homesteads.
