Title
Sprinfield Villas in Park Road
Description
This view shows part of a row of semi-detached Victorian houses known originally as Springfield Villas, built during the 1860s-1870 on the north-west side of the road after Park Road in the Twickenham Park area north of Richmond Road was extended towards the Thames during the 1840s. This extension took a perpendicular route at the site of The Old House, one of three of the original Regency villas built in the original part of the road leading from Richmond Road, Bute Lodge and Park Road surviving today. The wall in the foreground is the front boundary of Old House Gardens, which was built after The Old House was demolished during the 1930s. Located in the Richmond Riverside conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, the Springfield Villas comprise six semi-detached pairs and one detached house of similar style and are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit. Nearest and to the left of view are numbers 31-33. Also shown is a modern concrete street lamp and a Wolseley 1500 parked in the driveway of number 33. A builder's skip can also be seen in the road to the right of view, stencilled with the telephone numbers 01-570 0975 / 8240, 01 being the Greater London area code in use at the time.
