Mr Thomas Harrison

Thomas Harrison was an architect active, particularly in Cheshire, England, in the late-18th and early-19th centuries. He was born in Richmond, Yorkshire, England in 1744, the son of a joiner and travelled to Italy from 1769 to 1776.

Harrison designed several public and domestic works in England, Scotland and Wales. He even designed works in Russia with a lighthouse on the Black Sea Coast and a palace on the banks of the Dnieper. The latter was, however, never carried out.
