Dorset Hall was the home of Suffragette, Rose Lamartine-Yates, who eventually sold it to Merton & Morden UDC which merged with Merton Council. Via several housing associations, Merton passed it to Clarion Housing the current owner.
Sadly due to lack of a use it fell into disrepair and Dorset Hall Group worked to ensure that Clarion mended the leaking roof to prevent further deterioration. Councillor Edward Foley was able to help by providing overhead pictures of the roof with his drone.
DHG have enlisted the help of the National Trust to identify future uses and, at our meeting, want to tell us how they feel the residents of Merton Park can help take things forward.
