Built in 1535 by Sir Ralph Sadleir, Principal Secretary of State to Henry VIII, Sutton House is the oldest brick house in East London. Surviving for over 450 years, Sutton House is fascinating for its visible layers of change - from the original Tudor linenfold panelling and stone fireplaces, through the seventeenth-century painted staircase, to the Victorian Study and the more recent squatter’s mural painted during the 1980s.
