Title
Salem Baptist Church in Parkshot
Description
This view shows the terrace of early-eighteenth-century houses at 4-6 Parkshot in the Central Richmond conservation area of the Borough. At that time they served as the entrance to 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. The building partly visible to the right of the terrace is the Parkshot Rooms, built c1905 on a site occupied previously by a Georgian house where the author George Eliot lodged between 1855 and 1859 and 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. Also partly in view to the right is a pub sign for the rear entrance of the Bull and Bush at 1 Kew Road, known in the early 1960s as the Station Hotel and as the original home of the Crawdaddy Club, where The Rolling Stones first became popular. It is now the One Kew Road restaurant. A Mini estate, a Vauxhall Viva HA can be seen parked in the street, together with a partially visible Ford Consul Classic .
