Creswell, Harry Bulkeley (1869–1960). British architect. He was articled to Aston Webb before setting up his own practice in 1899. In addition to his work as Inspecting Engineer for the Crown Agents for the Colonies, he designed the turbine-factory at Queensferry, Flint (1901–6), with its huge pylon-like tower and battered Egyptianizing piers articulating each bay. Creswell was a contributor to the Architectural Review, and the author of The Honeywood File (1929) and The Honeywood Settlement (1930), both witty and humorous ‘fictional’ correspondence between architect, client, quantity surveyor, and builder.
