Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is situated inner north of London, in the borough of Camden. It is 3.6 miles from the centre of London. The area dates back to the Roman era: then it was submerged in dense, wolf-infested forests. During the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r. 1066-1087), this was named the Forest of Middlesex. During the reign of King Henry III, (r. 1216-1272), the forest was no longer held by royal tenure. Over the years, the forest was gradually transformed into meadows and open fields, with narrow lanes and streams. 
Primrose Hill was named during the Elizabethan period, because it referred to an abundance of spring flowers found on its slopes. 
John Nash was an architect, and director of the Regent's Canal, which was built, and completed in 1820. Nash, as a friend, persuaded the Prince Regent, later King George IV, (r. 1820-1830), to agree to the name Regent's Canal. In 1837, the London and Birmingham Railway, curved north-east out of Euston, around Primrose Hill. So, the two routes - canal and railway - outlined what was to become the Primrose Hill Conservation Area. Primrose Hill was almost entirely open land, until it rapidly became a London suburb, in the early Victorian era, during the 1840s. Primrose Hill became Crown property once again, and was granted to the poor of north London, for outdoor recreation.
The area had been owned by Lord Southampton: in 1840, he parcelled up portions of his land for development, and the current street plan was designed. His masterplan featured grand detached and semi-detached villas with big gardens, laid out along sweeping streets. Only some of these spacious villas were accomplished; and London's rapid growth led to the building of terraces instead. By 1870, Primrose Hill was almost complete. The area attracted wealthy residents; however many of the mews set behind the streets housed artisan's workshops, and the area became a centre of piano manufacture. 
The Primrose Hill area we know today, is a popular, pleasant part of London, and retains a good share of commercial activity. In 1971, it was established as a Conservation Area, and consists of 19th century listed houses, symmetrical terraces and large Italianate stuccoed villas. The Conservation Area features contrasting, high quality 20th century architecture; and these contemporary buildings have enhanced their older counterparts.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Primrose Hill

In the summer, I went with my friend to Primrose Hill Park. As the weather was pleasant, we enjoyed a picnic and a walk. It was great to see the views of London, from the summit.

The park has a café, with outdoor seating available to users of the playground, and indoor seating available to all customers. The park's sports facilities include grass pitches for junior football, full sized football, softball and mini soccer.

Things to do in Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill Park, Primrose Hill Road, London, NW1, has a summit, almost 63m above sea level. This has spectacular views of London; and the trees are kept low, so as not to obscure the view. At the summit, in York stone, an inscription is written. This is a quote from the poet, William Blake, (1757-1827). It reads: "I have conversed with the spiritual sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill". An oak tree. known as "Shakespeare's Tree", stands on the slope of the hill. It was planted in 1864, to mark the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth. A large crowd of workmen marched through London to watch the planting ceremony in 1864. A replacement tree was re-planted in 1964.

The park has a café, with outdoor seating available to users of the playground and indoor seating available to all customers. The park's sports facilities include grass pitches for junior football, full sized football, softball and mini soccer.
