Images have revealed the interiors at one of Sutton’s most historic buildings as preparations are being made for it to reopen later this month.

The 518-year-old Whitehall Museum, in Cheam’s Malden Road, will be open to the public again after a £1.9 million revamp.

Photos were published online by Sutton Council on May 31 ahead of the reopening on June 16.

Cheam councillor Holly Ramsey said: “I am thrilled that Whitehall will be reopening after vital repair works.

“Whitehall is a fabulous historic asset to the Village and hopefully I can speak for the community when I say we are hugely grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their grant which meant that Whitehall could be given a new lease of life.”

After having been closed for more than two years, since April 2016, the Grade II* listed building will hope to attract more visitors with its local history, art and activities.

An additional £140,000 has been contributed by Sutton Council to the project alongside a further £10,000 by the Friends of Whitehall Charity.
