The last opportunity to visit the museum before the site closes for redevelopment and the museum prepares to move to Albert Embankment.
There will be an opportunity to look around rarely seen areas of the museum, once used by the first Chief Officer of the Brigade, Captain Eyre Massey Shaw, who resided in Winchester House during the 19th century
The open day will celebrate the rich history of the site, from its use as pleasure gardens known as ‘Finch’s Grotto’ in the 1770s , a workhouse, a hat factory and finally from 1878 the official residence of the chief officers of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade.
