House in Parkshot
This view shows the terrace of early-eighteenth-century houses at 4-6 Parkshot in the Central Richmond conservation area of the Borough, photographed as providing the entrance of the Salem Baptist Church, which occupied the site to the rear of these buildings until it moved to Windsor Road, Kew, in 1973. Numbers 4, 5 and 6 Parkshot were Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1357756. The chapel, warehouse, stable buildings, and rear extensions were demolished during the late 1970s and the front elevations restored to something more like their original appearance. Number 4 is seen here as the offices of Eric C Godfrey, Signwriter. The building beyond the terrace to the right of view is the Parkshot Rooms, seen here with a council sign for Parkshot Day Nursery, built c1905 on a site occupied previously by a Georgian house where the author George Eliot lodged between 1855 and 1859 and which was used for the offices of the Richmond Board of Guardians. The Parkshot Rooms and the adjacent public baths building were demolished during the 1970s to make way for the Richmond-upon-Thames Magistrates Court building, which is now serves as offices for the distillers William Grant & Sons Ltd. A Ford Escort Estate, a Mini Estate, and a Vauxhall Viva HA can also be seen parked in the street.
