Scaffolding at Dorset Hall, April 2021

It was a real pleasure talking with Mesgana at Riverside Radio recently about our campaign to rescue Dorset Hall. The link to the interview is below. My interview starts at around 38 minutes in :

Hall update: Scaffolding is still up, but as I write no works have started.

The Dorset Hall Group understands that quotes have been obtained; Historic England and Merton Council have to decide the best way forward.

In 1919, an application was made to put up a Blue Plaque but it was turned down. We have been talking with the managers of the Blue Plaque scheme as to why they refused a plaque for such an important historic site. I have asked for a full answer and will report back when I have some information.
