Conservation of historic buildings

Projects 1994-2006

  St Mary's church, Summerstown, London
St Mary's church, Summerstown, London

The church was designed by Godfrey Pinkerton and built from 1902-04. The tower was never built but it is an imposing building nevertheless.  It is listed Grade II.  I carried out a quinquenntial survey in 2006. Fundraising to carry out the repairs is now underway.

  St Michael's church tower, Glastonbury Tor, Somerset
St Michael's Church Tower, Glastonbury Tor

The tower is a famous Somerset landmark, standing on Glastonbury Tor, a steep hill rising above the Somerset Levels. From 1999-2004, I was consultant architect for the conservation and repair of the tower and for site improvements.

  St Michael's Church, Burrow Mump, Somerset
St Michael's church, Burrow Mump

St Michael's is a ruined church on hill top near Taunton in Somerset, owned by the National Trust.  I carried out a quinquennial survey of the church in 1999.  Minor repairs were carried out in 2000.  I made further proposals for repairs to the upper parts of the tower in 2003.

  West Pennard barn, Somerset
West Pennard barn, Somerset

West Pennard barn is a medieval tithe barn related to Glastonbury Abbey. The barn fell into a disuse in the nineteenth century and was repaired in 1936, following a campaign by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. I carried out a survey in 2002 and made proposals for repairs.

I carried out small repair projects at Hampton Court Palace for Historic Royal Palaces from 1994-1998. Projects included: brickwork repairs, paneling repairs, cleaning of stone and terracotta and fire precautions work. I also coordinated a research project on the conservation of Reigate stone.

London terrace houses

I drew the isometric illustrations for the English Heritage publication, London Terrace Houses 1660-1860, in association with engineers Alan Baxter & Associates. The publication is a guide for building professionals and owners contemplating alterations to terrace houses.
