Avery Hill Road – Refurbishment

Check out this nineteen thirties semi-detatched house in Avery Hill Road, Eltham.  The client wanted to have the tile front replaced with a modern render whilst damp proofing the upstairs bedroom which had some moisture and mould.  Some of the timber needed replacing on the apex and the fascias, soffits and guttering all needed replacing as the course of time had taken it’s toll on the external of the house.  The client wished for the pebble dash to remain on the side and rear, but with repairs made and a complete re-paint to all sides, the plinth and wooden frames.  Front porch door supplied and installed by our sister company, Affix Windows & Doors.

All Saints Church, Footscray

All Saints Church, Foots Cray, is a Grade II* registered historic building situated in Rectory Lane on the edge of Foots Cray Meadows near the River Cray. The church was built in the 1330s and is still in use today.  However, the timber ceiling in the Chancel and some of the roof laths were in need of some care and attention.

Hennessy Ltd have the craftsman availble to undertake historic works.  Heritage paint and lime mortar plaster were used to repair and refurbish the areas as per the specifications outlined by the appointed architect for the church.  All refurbishments were conducted exactly to the original styles so that they are in keeping with the fabric of the building.



Respecting the heritage of the church, it was necessary to protect some of the historic fabric and artefacts within the building itself.  One of our Supervisors previously worked for English Heritage and has experience in looking after historic monuments.  These expertise were employed and great care was taken to cover the 11th century font, 19th century organ, pews and the stained glass windows, including a 14th century window of great historic design value.  Here are some images of the protective stages…


After approximately four weeks of the scaffold being erected, it was time to remove it all and return the church to it’s former glory with a freshly painted timber ceiling in the chancel and the roof laths repaired.  Our restorative team took great care, ensuring that the correct paint and materials were used with the traditional methods of craftmanship.  And here is the finished ceiling.



If you have a Church or historic building in need of some care and attention, then Hennessy Ltd are able to take on the project.  We have the craftsman and team to undertake heritage work and bring these old buildings a new lease of life so that they can continue to be used and enjoyed by those who have the pleasure to live, work or visit these fantastic buildings.


Otford Methodist Church Kitchen Adaption

Otford Methodist Church required the kitchen to be adapted to suit their needs.  Even though this kitchen suite is relatively new, the water heater unit in the cupboard was blocking all the valves making it difficult for the client to get access.  The solution was to move the unit higher up and place in a tower unit instead of a base unit.  This created extra storage space and easy access as you can see from the image below.  Storage remains at the top and bottom.  The valves are now accessible and the unit is higher up as per the client’s request.

Otford Methodist Church

Otford Methodist Church required a replacement boundary fence.  The existing heavy duty wire fence had buckled and the wooden supporting posts had rotted at the base.  The whole fence had collapsed and it was unsafe for ramblers and the public using the allotments and footpaths behind the church.

Hennessy Ltd replaced this with a new heavy duty wire fence, but this time used concrete posts for better support.  This new fence will last much longer having replaced the timber posts. The end result is a stronger boundary fence and much neater looking fence.  This is the second fencing project we have completed in the Sevenoaks area this year.

Blackfen render & pebble dash

We have now completed this domestic project in Boundary Road, Blackfen.  A semi-detatched property that was covered in pebble dash and was looking a bit weathered and worn out.  Our team hacked off the original pebble dash leaving the walls ready for a half pebble dash and half render, with drip beads over the windows and plinth.  Boiler was replaced by our plumbing team, including renewed pipe work.  The windows and front door were supplied and fitted by our partner company, Affix Windows & Doors.  Some other small additions were made making life a little easier for the occupants to open their gate and also have running water available in the garden for those with green fingers! Here are the BEFORE images…

Shop Front Refurbishment & Repair

This shop front in Dulwich was looking a little run down and in need of a lick of paint!  The canopy had also been damaged and required a repair so that it could be used again.  Hennessy Ltd, has given this shop front a new and fresh look, making it look more appealing and it stands out amongst the other shop fronts.




Property Refurbishment

Here we have a small refurbishment to a property in Victoria Way in the Borough of Greenwich.  You can see what was a Victorian porch was adapted into a communal entrance and was in need of much TLC and removal of some foilage that had been growing around it.




A much improved facade.

Kitchen Design Project

Here we have an extension to an existing property and brand new kitchen design.  With our partner company, Affix Windows & Doors, based in Blackfen, we were able to create a unique design for the client including Roof Lantern and Bi-fold doors that open out on to the patio and garden area.  A fantastic herringbone laminate floor and LED spotlights and coloured mood lighting for the lanterns for that perfect ‘heart of the house’ feel whatever the occasion.

Capel Place, Wilmington Project

Here is one of our recent projects. Please see our facebook page for more photos, https://www.facebook.com/hennessyltd

We have renovated an exisitng property and built a brand new property next door. We are very pleased with both of them and what a great difference between the before and after shots.  A much improved property and a brand new household to add to the village.  The property has fantastic views across fields and brings an improved look to the location, instead of a run down and under used piece of land.  With some TLC we have created two fantastic family homes in one of London’s suburban areas.
