Boathouse 4, 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 badly in places and the north wall is propped. Whilst patch repairs appear to have been undertaken previously, a comprehensive approach 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.
