Title
Buildings in The Green and Paved Court
Description
This view of the buildings to the southern corner of Richmond Green centres on 29 The Green, with Paved Court to its left flank, a lane connecting The Green and King Street and located in the Richmond Green conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. Number 29, seen here as Walter C Joel & Co, is of the eighteenth century with a nineteenth-century shop front, Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1357769. Some of the buildings in Paved Court date back to the late seventeenth century or early Georgian period and most are listed by Historic England. For example, the shop with the bowed front at number 1 Paved Court with the Health Foods sign, forming part of the return of number 29, is listed as Health Food Stores, Grade II in 1968, listing number 1357718. To the left of view is The Princes Head. Originally called The Duke's Head, this eighteenth-century pub was rebuilt c1900 and owned by some 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. Number 30 The Green, to the right of view, is of mid-eighteenth century and was Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1065309. Since this photograph was taken, the balcony, porch, and oversized second-floor window have been removed and other extensive work done to restore its original appearance. Three trees have also been planted in the paved triangle in front of these buildings, which have since grown above the roof line. An elderly couple can be seen sitting in front of the pub, and three women are chatting in the lane beyond. Another woman is browsing in Joel's shop window .
