Projects at Hampton Court Palace

Jolly Boatman and Hampton Court Station sites

Jolly Boatman site at Hampton Court

I have an ongoing interest in the future of the Jolly Boatman and Hampton Court Station sites, which are currently facing redevelopment, which would harm the setting of Hampton Court. I have made an proposal here for developing a site in East Molesey as an alternative to development on the Jolly Boatman site.

Conservation & repair projects

From 1994 - 1997 I carried out number of conservation and repair jobs including repair of brickwork, timber paneling and fire precautions work.  Projects carried out included the repair of timber paneling in the Wolsey Apartments; the repair of the Wren Niche in the Privy Garden, and passive fire precautions in the Barrack Block.

Reigate stone recording & research

Reigate stone research project

From 1997 to 2001, I coordinated a research project into the nature of Reigate stone.  Reigate stone is a non durable calcareous sandstone used extensively in major buildings in London in the medieval and Tudor periods, although its condition in recent years has been cause for concern.

The interim findings of the project were published in the Journal of Architectural Conservation in 2001.

Planning & context issues

Filter beds site, Seething Wells

From 1994 to 2004 I advised Historic Royal Palaces about development proposals for sites adjacent to or overlooking Hampton Court Palace and Kew Palace. I was part of the team working on public inquiries in 1998 and 2003 for the old filter beds site at Seething Wells on the Thames opposite Hampton Court Park.

In 1999, I worked on a proposal for the Hampton Court Station site, at a time when the site (opposite Hampton Court Palace) was facing redevelopment.
