Boathouse and deep-water dock, riverside landing stage, steps, balustrade and gates, Thames Eyot, Cross Deep, Twickenham - Richmond upon Thames

Built in the 1870s as part of Frederick Chancellor's remodelling of the house and grounds of Poulett Lodge for William Punchard. The boathouse and dock are disused and falling into disrepair, with encroaching vegetation threatening the masonry. The balustrade is structurally compromised and shows evidence of cracking and leaning. This also affects the landing stage and gates. Discussions towards a solution are at an early stage with the owners.
