Protect our suffragette history - Save Dorset Hall

413 of 500 signatures

Dorset Hall is an important part of Wimbledon and the country’s history of women’s suffrage.

Wimbledon's Dorset Hall was the home of leading suffragette Rose Lamartine Yates (1875-1954) and, as a safe house & refuge, holds an important place in the history of women's suffrage. Unfortunately its current owners, Clarion Housing Association allowed this important Grade II listed building to fall into disrepair.

We the undersigned congratulate the Dorset Hall Group for persuading Clarion to begin repairs. We call upon Merton Council to ensure these are carried out sympathetically and for Clarion to preserve Dorset Hall as the community space and monument to the suffragette movement as intended when this important aspect of Wimbledon’s heritage was originally sold to the borough on favourable terms.
