Mrs Croft daughter of Henry Page moved to Fanhams Hall in 1880. She rebuilt the house in 1901. In 1878 she commissioned a new set of windows from Morris and Company. It remained as part of the estate until 1950 when it was sold to a bank.

  • The above picture shows The Gatehouses at the entrance to Fanhams Hall. My paternal grandparents lived in the house on the right of the picture No 1 with my dad and his brother. My grandfather worked in Fanhams Hall gardens as did my dad until he was called up to fight in the early 1940’s

  • After being owned by the Westminster Bank, Fanhams Hall became the training college for the Building Societies Association. It was eventually sold to Sainsbury’s, who made significant modifications to it.

  • I lived in Musley Lane, Ware with my grandparents from 1943 to 1946 when Fanhams Hall was still a private house, well known locally for the Japanese Garden. I continued to visit them until 1965. When I joined Westminster Bank as a junior trainee I went to Oaken Holt near Oxford rather than Fanhams because it was for training senior staff

  • The “bank” which acquired Fanhams Hall originally was Westminster Bank, which subsequently became part of National Westminster Bank. They used it as a training centre, mainly for inducting new members of staff. I attended a staff garden party there back in the early 1970’s which was held to commemorate its disposal to another commercial organisation.
