Boathouse 5 (easternmost 13 bays), Platts Eyot, Hampton - Richmond upon Thames

Timber-framed boathouse built in 1917 by Augustine Alban Hamilton Scott for the Thorneycroft firm to build torpedo boats for the Admiralty. A full measured survey of the remaining structure has been completed, but it is in very bad condition with a large area of collapse. Solutions for this structure will be discussed as part of the expected overall strategy for Platts Eyot island on which the boathouse is located.
