Osterley Park & House, London


Osterley Park is a mansion set in a large park of the same name. It is in the London Borough of Hounslow, part of the western suburbs of London. When the house was built, it was surrounded by rural countryside. It was one of a group of large houses close to London which served as country retreats for wealthy families but were not true country houses on large agricultural estates.
The original building on this site was a manor house built in the 1570s for banker Sir Thomas Gresham, who purchased the manor of Osterley in 1562.[1] The "faire and stately brick house" was completed in 1576. It is known that Queen Elizabeth visited. The stable block from this period remains at Osterley Park. Gresham was so wealthy that he also bought the neighbouring Manor of Boston in 1572.

Fourways was instructed by to erect independent scaffold on the exterior for repairs and cleaning the facade stonework and brickwork.
