Celebrating 40 Years of Construction

#Throwbackthursday - 2001 - Ham House, Near Richmond


Working on behalf of The National Trust, MCS was appointed to carry out extensive external refurbishment works to Ham House, in Richmond.


The works included the full external redecoration to the front, rear and side elevations and also to the estate cottages.


The 17th-century Grade I listed house is set in formal gardens on the bank of the River Thames in Ham, south of Richmond in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The original house was completed in 1610 by Thomas Vavasour, an Elizabethan courtier and Knight Marshal to James I. It was then leased, and later bought, by William Murray, a close friend and supporter of Charles I.
