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. In May 2021, a significant fire took place on the island which it is believed has destroyed a large extent of Boathouse 4. The cause of the fire has been determined by the Fire Brigade as accidental. Prior to the fire, condition surveys were being carried out.
