THIS blog was created by me, Chris Squire, to report on and to support the [now successful] campaigns in the summer of 2014 to thwart the plan by Richmond upon Thames council to build a ‘boat house’ [in fact it would have been, as the Feasibility Study made clear, a barge shed] for the Queen’s rowbarge, Gloriana, in Orleans Gardens in Twickenham, south-west London.
This blog, in the main, comprised factual material extracted from and linked to primary sources, interspersed with some comments from me and others. Comments on matters of fact, policy and aesthetics, etc. are welcome; please provide links to your sources if you can. Personal comments are not and may be deleted or edited without notice.
