In 2002/3 as part of my MA course at Oxford Brookes I produced a dissertation on the work of a little known Edwardian Architect C. H. B. Quennell. 

Like many conservation officers I was frustrated at how little information was available on some architects and the difficulty, in the absence of such work, to convince people that they are worthy of greater consideration.

My study identified 360 buildings by Quennell, ranging from carefully considered  Neo-Georgian houses in Bickley to rather ugly (but listed) early modernist houses for Crittall's in Essex.

Always keen to pursue new leads if any of you come across a Quennell building, or anything referring or relating to Quennell please let me know.
