Title
Cottages in Christchurch Road
Description
The Christchurch Road conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, in East Sheen to the north of Richmond Park, has a number of exceptional houses close to Percy Lodge (1740), the Plough Inn, and Christ Church itself. This view shows the row of largely unspoilt cottages at numbers 29-41 on the south side of Christchurch Road to the west of a similar but earlier row opposite Percy Lodge. These cottages are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit and the eyecatching cottage gardens continue to make a substantial contribution to the character of the conservation area. Since this photograph was taken, the extension to number 41 has acquired an additional storey, although still set back from the facade of the row and constructed in complementary style and materials. The unsightly concrete lamp post as pictured has since been replaced with a no less unsightly modern one carrying three traffic signs. A Ford Capri is parked in the road.
