Fulham Palace

Greengage undertook a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal and detailed Bat Scoping Survey of

Fulham Palace. Set amongst historic grounds on the north bank of the Thames in west London this site provided a home to the Bishop of London for centuries, dating back to the year 700AD. Heritage Lottery Funding was sought to renovate sections of roof at the Palace and restore the parkland to a more characteristic historic landscape.

Initial surveys identified high bat roosting value in the Tudor quadrangle. Additional emergence and re-entry surveys were accordingly undertaken throughout 2017. No bats were discovered but advice was provided to ensure that wider works helped conserve the high population that clearly existed in the surrounding area.

Greengage also provided additional advice relating to conservation of reptiles and invertebrates in the grounds of the palace, supporting parkland management works.
