St Helena Wharf on Richmond Riverside
This view shows St Helena Wharf, Riverside, Richmond, looking south-eastwards from the St Helena boathouses towards Richmond Bridge. Located within the Richmond Riverside conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, this is a popular recreational space well served by good public transport links, boating activity, pubs and bars and is in close proximity to Richmond Green and a number of heritage buildings. The balustrade delineates the end of the garden frontages of St Helena House (c1820) and St Helena Terrace, and extends across the entire row of eleven arched boathouses, which apparently predate these houses. Just in view to the left of picture is number 5 St Helena Terrace, all five properties being Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1080822. Next door is the White Cross Hotel, an important riverside public house also dating from the 1820s, which was Grade II listed in 1983, listing number 1250279. The traditional road surface of Riverside extends beyond the White Cross into Water Lane and is listed locally. Other important riverside buildings in view with listed status include Riverside House, currently a Slug and Lettuce, Grade II listed in 1983 as 'Warehouse on corner of Water Lane and Riverside', listing number 1253166; 4 Whittaker Avenue, listed locally as a Building of townscape Merit; the old Palm Court Hotel Grade II listed in 1950, listing number 1357681; and Tower House at 10-12 Bridge Street, Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1358055. Also partially in view in the background is Richmond Bridge, which was built in 1777 by James Paine and Kenton Couse and is the oldest bridge over the Thames within Greater London. It was Grade I listed in 1952, listing number 1180951. To the right of picture can be seen the cabin of St Helena pier. Also in view are a Triumph Herald convertible, a Morris Minor saloon, a Routemaster bus, and a few riverside walkers.
