Title
Merton Cottages in Christchurch Road
Description
This view favours the houses at numbers 58 and 60 Christchurch Road, East Sheen, in the row of cottages known as Merton Cottages. Dating back to the eighteenth century, along with The Plough public house partially visible to the right of view, they are located in the Christchurch Road conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames to the north of Richmond Park, across the road from Percy Lodge, originally a hunting lodge for the Duke of Northumberland. Numbers 58 and 60 were Grade II listed in 1983, listing number 1080840. To their right, numbers 54-56 are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit; numbers 50-52 were Grade II listed in 1983, listing number 1080839; numbers 44-48 were also Grade II listed in 1983, listing number 1358082; The Plough is also listed locally. This view shows doors, porches, gates and retaining walls, possibly a later addition, which have since been removed and replaced with matching windows, and the brickwork whitewashed. It is noted that the postwar OS map numbers the row from 1-9 and labels the entire row as Merton Cottages, hence the suspended name plaque at number 60 showing '1 Merton Cottage'. A Stadard 10 saloon car can also be seen parked in the road.
