Case Study 
Park Place, RG9

Scope of Works:


Installation of Balustrade, façade restoration and cleaning

Park Place is a historic house in the civil parish of Remenham in Berkshire, set in large grounds above the River Thames near Henley. The estate was purchased by Henry Seymour Conway in 1752 who made extensive improvements. Humphrey Gainsborough, brother of the artist Thomas Gainsborough, designed Conway's Bridge, built in 1763 at Park Place. This is an interesting rustic arched stone structure close to the River Thames that still carries traffic on the road between Wargrave and Henley-on-Thames. It wasn't until 1988 that the house became a boarding school.
