Thomas Greenway

Thomas Greenway was an architect, mason and carver active particularly in Bath, England, with a yard at Widcombe near Bath, in the early-18th century.

As an architect, Greenway built several houses in Bath and is noted especially for his early introduction into the city of remarkably effective Renaissance detail.

As a carver, Greenway earned his reputation for producing flower pots, urns, vases and other architectural ornaments and was often employed, as were his sons, by John Wood, both on his Bath and his Bristol projects.

Colvin notes that in 1730 Greenway visited Dublin, Ireland taking with him, for sale, some of his most popular wares.
