Former Library & UDC Building

Former Hampton Wick UDC building

You may not be aware, but the former Library and UDC building in the High Street is not listed, only designated a Building of Townscape Merit, a much lower listing offering less protection.

The Hampton Wick Association, assisted by Richard Pain, a prominent local Architect, has been working on your behalf to protect the building by lobbying English Heritage for a higher listing.

Built in 1884, with an Art Nouveau terracotta façade, it is a prominent feature of the High Street with its Flemish gable, columns, stained glass panels and the medallion of Hampton Wick, the stag and crown, shown below.

Developers have already applied for planning permission to convert the building into residential accommodation, with the danger that its façade and interior could be lost forever, so we’ve been fighting the local council, on your behalf, to preserve the building for you and future generations.

You can help by contacting English Heritage to add your views to the proposal to list the building by contacting them at the address below.
