Cranbrook Castle, Ilford Featured 13 May 2021 Print

Cranbrook Castle, Ilford

Raymonds Folly (now gone). Charles Raymond (1713-88) made his fortune as a captain in the East India company. He retired to Essex, where he had a three-sided tower built in 1765, known as Ilford Castle or Cranbrook Castle, at a cost of £420. It was to be the family mausoleum but he and his wife, Sarah, were buried at Barking. It became known as Raymonds Folly but was probably a banqueting house. It was demolished in 1923 to make way for a tennis club. Date: circa 1910
