Edmund Ward

2nd of July 1998

Edmund Ward, who was a resident of Chipperfield for 55 years, died on March 27 aged 85. He was an acclaimed architect, and perhaps his most famous scheme was that for the refurbishment and enlargement of the Royal Opera House. He was also a railway enthusiast and built a miniature railway in a field adjoining his garden, with steam locomotives powered by coal. He was a member of the Royal Fine Art Commission from 1974 to 1983, and is survived by his wife, now living in Bournemouth, and his daughter.
