Boston Manor House
Boston Manor House is one of West London’s lesser-known gems and a fine Jacobean manor house built in 1623. Set back from Boston Manor Road in Brentford, the three-storey building is situated in Boston Manor Park which contains a lake and ancient cedar trees.
Phase 1 of the regeneration project which focuses on Boston Manor House is now in delivery and capital works started on 15 July 2019. This phase is a two-year project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, Greater London Authority (GLA) Good Growth Fund, the Wolfson Foundation, the Pilgrim Trust, the Heritage of London Trust and the John and Ruth Howard Trust, to restore and improve access at the Grade I listed historic house. For the safety of the public during the building works, there will be a fence around the works site and from today there will be no public access to the Park via the gated entrances immediately next to the House.
The current pedestrian entrance next to the stables will be for stables residents use only and the gated entrance by The Ride bus-stop will be exclusively for the construction site. The main Park entrances on Boston Manor Road between GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Manor Vale and at Boston Gardens will not be affected.
Reopening of the house to the public is scheduled for Autumn 2022.
Boston Manor Regeneration Update
The roof repairs at Boston Manor House which started in July are proceeding well. These are part of the Phase 1 of Boston Manor regeneration project which sees a series of capital works at Boston Manor House, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, Greater London Authority (GLA) Good Growth Fund, the Wolfson Foundation, the Pilgrim Trust, the Heritage of London Trust and the John and Ruth Howard Trust, to restore and improve access at the Grade I listed historic house.
As part of the roof repairs it has been discovered that the bellcote feature (the wooden decorative structure housing the Boston Manor House bell) cannot be repaired while in situ on the roof and so on Friday 8 November it will be carefully removed by crane to ground level, where it will be properly examined and a full repair commissioned. It is expected that the repaired bellcote will go back on to Boston Manor House next summer.
For safety reasons no viewing of this work on site is possible. The capital works continued until spring 2022. The house is now in the interpretation fit out stage. During the restoration works the House will remain closed to the public and access restrictions around the area of the House will remain in place.
