From the James to the Thames

The Richmond Society has organised an event next Thursday evening 18th January at 7.45pm, at the Richmond Adult Community College, Parkshot, TW9 2RE.

The speaker is Jason Debney, Coordinator of the Thames Landscape Strategy(Weybridge to Kew) organisation. Thames Landscape Strategy raised almost £10 million to improve Richmond’s Riverside and the view from Richmond Hill during London’s Arcadia Project, and continues to preserve and enhance the Thames between Weybridge and Kew.

Jason is one of our local heroes, and a most charismatic, entertaining and knowledgeable speaker. He will be telling us about what connects the many “Richmonds of the World”, especially the similarities between Richmond Yorkshire, Richmond Surrey and Richmond Virginia, and including a fascinating insight into links between Richmond upon Thames and Pocahontas. Do come along to hear this able speaker, and to meet old friends and make new ones.

    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.
