Boathouse 2, Platts Eyot, Hampton - Richmond upon Thames

Timber-framed boathouse clad in corrugated zinc with a Belfast truss roof. It was constructed in 1916 by Augustine Alban Hamilton Scott for the Thorneycroft firm to build fast launches carrying torpedoes for the Admiralty. The roof and zinc sheeting are failing in places and the windows are broken. A comprehensive approach to repair is required. Solutions for this structure will be discussed as part of the expected overall strategy for Platts Eyot island on which the boathouse is located.
