Chronological list of Soane’s buildings project

Stephen Astley, 1999 [updated January 2022]

This list comprises the principal architectural works of Sir John Soane. It does not include student projects such as the Triumphal Bridge, nor does it list the many buildings Soane surveyed for leases or for legal cases. Also excluded are the smaller works which were simple repairs to existing buildings.

The date under which a project appears is the date when Soane started work on the commission.

Subsequent building campaigns on the same site are listed in the front entry. Each entry is arranged in the following way: location |client | nature of works | outcomes. Entries are arranged alphabetically within years.

In cases where the archives left by Soane are inconclusive, or where physical evidence has been demolished or rebuilt, the extent of Soane’s contribution (or even if the work was executed at all), is sometimes not clear. Sometimes Soane’s designs were executed by a local builder and so what was built is a local interpretation of Soane’s drawings.

It should also be stressed that this list is not the final word on the subject. New discoveries are still being made, especially where Soane’s work has survived subsequent remodelling. Sadly, Soane’s work is still being demolished, such as in 1997 at Colomberie House, St Helier, C.I., or remodelled, as at Cricket St Thomas, Somerset (1998-99). Vigilance is clearly needed.

This list owes much to pioneering work by Dorothy Stroud and Sir Howard Colvin and also to the continuing work of my colleagues at the Soane Museum. I am especially grateful to Ptolemy Dean who read this list when it was in draft form and made many helpful suggestions. His book Sir John Soane and the Country Estate, London, 1999, provides an illustrated gazetteer of Soane’s countryhouse practice. [also Ptolemy Dean, Sir John Soane and London, London, 2006].
