Shop fronts on Hill Rise
This view shows a row of historic shop buildings that still stand on Hill Rise, including The Victoria pub, in the Richmond Hill conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. From left to right, the pair of three storey shop buildings at 72-74 shown occupied by KEY SECURITY and DOGGY INN are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit. The Victoria, now The Victoria Inn, at 78 Hill Rise is shown with an IND COOPE pub sign with a portrait of Queen Victoria and Grade II listed; listing number: 1065434. To the middle of the row, a raincoated couple browse in THE WILLOW gift shop at 80 Hill Rise and an oddly designed four-wheel pram is shown parked outside P.D. & M. BAYLISS newsagent and tobacconist. 84 Hill Rise, shown as Hornby & Clarke, is the most distinctive of the row. Formerly the shopfront for the dairy and creamery of J. Clarke & Sons, the name still set in mosaic to its entrance, the shop front has decorative tiling to the panels below its shop windows as well as its interior, some of which is just visible beyond the window display, with an array of neatly arranged tinned products. Believed to be eighteenth-century with a nineteenth-century shop, the building was Grade II listed in 1983; listing number: 1357709. Partly visible to the right of view, the three-storey building on the corner of The Vineyard at 86 Hill Rise was once the tea room and bakery of C.BANKS, but is shown as the AY SKA RESTAURANT. There appears to be some corrugated sheet to the far left of view. The shops that used to stand opposite were all demolished during the 1960s and a steep wooded embankment now extends down to Petersham Road.
