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 is looking south-west towards King Street. Most prominent in view is the shop at number 2 Paved Court, seen here trading as Leathertops. This building is os late seventeenth century with a nineteenth-century shop front and was Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1065368. It is now occupied by Toast womenswear. Beyond is number 4, seen here as Dickens & Jones and though to be linked at the rear to the main department store building on George Street. It is listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit. The two shop buildings seen here as Rogers & Fielder antiques are numbers 6 and 8, which are of similar age and style to number 2 and were Grade II listed in 1968, listing numbers 1180692 and 1065369 respectively. Numbers 4-8 are currently incorporated in the major renovation scheme centred around the former House of Fraser department store at the adjoining site at 80 George Street, which was originally owned by Goslings, an important local drapers business founded in 1795. Gosling and Sons Ltd grew into the large store on the adjoining site at 75-80 George Street and 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 and later rebranded as House of Fraser. Opposite number 2, the bowed late eighteenth or early nineteenth century shop window of number 1 is visible, Grade II listed in 1968 as Health Food Stores, listing number 1357718. Also in view is a suited man, the florist's on-street display towards the end of the lane, a woman walking along King Street, and the BSM motoring school in the three-storey shop building also in King Street.
