Title
House in Parkshot
Description
This elevated view was taken on the construction site now occupied by the building known today as The Old Court House, formerly Richmond-upon-Thames Magistrates Court and currently serving as offices for distillers William Grant & Sons Ltd. It shows the rear of the terrace of early Georgian houses at 4-6 Parkshot that were Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1357756. At that time, they served as an entrance to the Salem Baptist Church, the chapel of which is visible to the right of view, which occupied the site to the rear of these buildings until it moved to Windsor Road, Kew, in 1973. The chapel, warehouse, stable buildings, and some of the rear extensions of this terrace were demolished during the 1970s and the front elevations restored to something more like their original appearance. Completing the row is number 3 Parkshot, the rear of which can be seen beyond the roof of the chapel. Believed to be early nineteenth century, this house was Grade II listed in 1976, listing number 1285377. Much of the boundary wall to this site shown at the bottom of the photograph was retained for the service road leading to the rear of the Magistrates Court site, the muddy alleyway indicating construction work was still in progress at the time. Across Parkshot from number 6 is rear entrance to the Bull and Bush at 1 Kew Road, known in the early 1960s as the Station Hotel, the original home of the Crawdaddy Club where The Rolling Stones first became popular. It is now the rear entrance of the One Kew Road restaurant and listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit.
