The Bower House is a grade I listed Palladian mansion in Havering-atte-Bower, England.[1] It was built in 1729 by Henry Flitcroft.[1] The stable block is separately grade I listed.[2] It incorporated architectural items salvaged from the ruined Havering Palace. It remained a private home until 1976 when it was purchased by the Ford Motor Company.[3] It is currently used as a religious training centre.[4] It forms part of the Open House London weekend.[5]
