The Grade II listed Dairy at Kenwood house was built as a creamery and tea room to the Mansion House and still has its original Georgian tiles and stone floor, windows and shutters and marble sinks, including a beautiful black marble basin. Underneath the building is a brick ice house, a rare survivor in the London area.

The FWA team will be repairing and conserving these fascinating dairy buildings so that they may become accessible to the public as an exhibition and interpretation space, and volunteer hub. Works will include the installation of a complex temporary scaffold roof while we re-roof the buildings and replace the existing cementicous external render with a lime render.
