Gothic Boathouse, Gunnersbury Park, Gunnersbury Avenue - Hounslow

Mid-C19 Gothic folly tower, converted from a tile kiln and situated on the southern shore of Potomac Lake. Some repair and emergency works have been undertaken, partly funded by Historic England. Extensive further repairs are required and a new use needs to be secured. Discussions are continuing between stakeholders and potential new projects are being actively explored.
