View of Paved Court
Description
Paved Court is a lane between The Green and King Street located in the Richmond Green conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. Some of the buildings date back to the late seventeenth century or early Georgian period and are listed by Historic England. This view shows most of the row of shop fronts on the south-east side, taking in the varying roof heights of the individual buildings and some of King Street beyond. Most prominent in view is the shop at number 2, shown here trading as Court Antiques and described as being late seventeenth century with late nineteenth-century shop front. It was Grade II in 1968, listing number 1065368. It adjoins The Princes Head pub, as indicated by the ceramic tiles as pebble dash just visible to the left of view. Number 4 displaying the Goslings hoarding was part of the complex of buildings and yard space occupied by Gosling and Sons Ltd, an important local drapers business founded in 1795 trading in the large store on the adjoining site at 75-80 George Street. They were acquired by John Barker & Co Ltd in 1947. After the George Street premises was damaged by fire in 1962, the corner site of George Street and King Street was redeveloped as a Dickens & Jones Department Store in the late 1960s, later rebranded as House of Fraser. Number 4 is listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit and appears to have a first-floor loading door. Also in view is the bowed window of the shop at number 1, trading as a health food shop, beyond which a pram can be seen parked near the cafe further down the lane. Two men can also be seen at the far end of the lane walking towards King Street, one appearing to be wearing a pair of braces for his suit trousers.
