The Bloody Tower, HM Tower of London
Fantastic to see our latest contribution to The Tower of London now complete. The works comprised improvements to the hard landscaping around the Bloody Tower to compliment a new interpretation scheme by Northover Brown.
Following over 30 years at the top, our longest standing Partner and Director, Neil Frederick Pritchard, has decided to hang up his set square from 01 October 2018 and retire for an easier life with the grandchildren.
The Sunderland lad joined the practice in the early 80’s as an enthusiastic young upstart having previously worked in the north east where he also studied Architecture at Newcastle University. During this time, the practice, then a Partnership named Burford, Marlow & Carden, changed its name to the Radley House Partnership, following relocation to our current premises at Radley House on St Cross Road, Winchester. An overseas office in Qatar in the booming Middle East had also been established, which Neil moved to in 1983 and successfully headed up during the late 1980’s. On his return in 1990, with his professional and managerial potential clearly recognised, Neil was appointed a Partner of the UK practice and set about the modernisation of the Winchester office, during which time he successfully landed the largest contract the company has seen to date and subsequently helped guide the firm through two recessions and its transition to a Limited Company.
An avid cricket and opera fan with hidden passions for filing, felt tip pens and the Pet Shop Boys (!) Neil now intends to spend more time pursuing his passions outside of architecture with his beloved family. Neil, from all your friends at Radley House, thanks for all your help over the years and we wish you well for the future.
Works at the Flamsteed Tower are now complete and the exit stair has been re-opened for the public.
In the end, the lining for each step of the Norman spiral staircase had to be individually constructed to suit the profile of the curved stone treads and risers. This included a bespoke metal frame carrier and separation membranes concealed beneath oak joinery and bronze anti-slip nosing’s.
It is hoped that the new linings will last for another 40 years, plus!
The photos were kindly provided by Historic Royal Palaces and will feature on a future project page detailing its development, so please stay tuned….

Planning permission has now been awarded for 4no new dwellings, proposed to be located off Stoney Lane, just north of Winchester City Centre. Traditional in architectural style, the dwellings have been designed to overcome a number of challenging constraints on the steeply sloping site.
Radley House Partnership are delighted to announce that the Northwood Cemetery Heritage Project has won the 2018 Isle of Wight Society’s Conservation Award. Jeremy Poll, the lead architect, attended the ceremony on behalf of Radley House Partnership, which was held at the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes on the 18th of May 2018. The restoration of the cemetery chapels was undertaken with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund in collaboration with the Friends of Northwood Cemetery and the Isle of Wight Council. Further information can be found by clicking on the link, below.
Works are well underway for the refurbishment and extension of Park Cottage together with new Pool, Garden Room and Ancillary Buildings.
The development of seven 1 and 2-bed flats at Pipe Kiln Court is now complete. This follows a 12 Month programme of works.
The works were undertaken by the Clydesdale Group Ltd. During the construction phase a unique collection of Victorian clay pipe kilns were found on made-up ground to the rear (hence the name). These were recorded by the archaeologist and re-covered. The existing Victorian buildings fronting the street were found to be in poor condition and had to be substantially rebuilt. The team also had to overcome complex drainage, structural and access issues during the build.
However we are pleased to say that the end result is spectacular piece of contemporary architecture in a unique central Winchester setting and all units have now been sold.
Radley House Partnership are pleased to announce that we have joined the LABC Partner Authority Scheme (PAS) for Building Regulations advice and plan appraisals.
The scheme is designed to help Architectural Practises that operate in multiple locations and deal with many local authorities, and enables Architects to have a one-to-one working relationship with a preferred local authority. In our case we have partnered with Winchester City Council, with whom we already have a good working relationship.
There are many client benefits to such a scheme, such as a single point of contact, consistent approach, improved pre-application service and excellent liaison with other services such as Fire, Police and Environmental Health.
Following a successful series of planning consents, works have now commenced on the Mortimer Close site in Kings Worthy, Winchester, to provide 4 new semi-detached dwellings.
