Title
The Princes Head public house in The Green
Description
This view shows The Princes Head at numbers 27-28 The Green and Paved Court, a lane between The Green and King Street located in the Richmond Green conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, looking south-west towards King Street. Some of the buildings date back to the late seventeenth century or early Georgian period and are listed by Historic England. Originally The Duke's Head, this eighteenth-century pub was rebuilt c1900 and owned by a number of famous cricketers, notably the Surrey, Somerset and England fast bowler Thomas Richardson (1870-1912). It is listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit and still bears the Fuller Smith & Turner Chiswick Ales and Stouts lettering, part of which can be seen in this view. The modern illuminated pub sign has since been replaced with something more traditional in style. To the right of view is number 29 The Green, seen here as Walter C Joel & Co, this corner building being eighteenth century with a nineteenth-century shop front, Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1357769. The shop with the bowed front at number 1 Paved Court with the Health Foods sign, is listed as Health Food Stores, Grade II in 1968, listing number 1357718. At the end of the vista, partly obscured by a lorry, can be seen a motoring school hoarding, possibly the British School of Motoring, in one of the locally listed Buildings of Townscape Merit in King Street. Two women, presumably shopping, are just visible in the lane, one entering a shop.
