    Richmond Divided, The Great Chertsey Road

    6.45pm for 7pm startThe National Archives

    A316, early days.

    Paul Velluet, President of the Richmond Local History Society, Chartered Architect and former Assistant Regional Director of English heritage, has kindly agreed to give a talk to The Kew Society entitled “Richmond Divided”, on the building of the A316 that promises to be both fascinating and enlightening.

    The presentation will include archived maps, going back to the 1700’s and photographs from the 1930’s cataloguing each stage of the roads development and the necessary demolition of existing housing stock.

    As we drive, cycle and attempt to navigate the A316 on foot, we might now be much more likely to take notice of the evidence of the distant past along its route. 

    Tickets available on the door.

    Kew Society members £3, Non-members £6
