Loft conversion — Strawberry Hill

Project Summary

In subsequent centuries, Teddington enjoyed a prosperous life due to the proximity of royalty, and by 1800 had grown significantly. But the “Little Ice Age” had made farming much less profitable and residents were forced to find other work. This change resulted in great economic change in the 19th century. The first major event was the construction of Teddington Lock in 1811 with its weir across the river. This was the first (and now the biggest) of five locks built at the time by the City of London Corporation.
