Gazebo in Friars Lane
This view is believed to show the almost completely ivy-clad octagonal eighteenth-century gazebo, prior to restoration, which stands at one of the bends in Friars Lane in the grounds of Queensberry House in the Richmond Riverside conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. It was Grade II listed in 1983; listing number 1286558. Together with an adjoining set of brick arches, it is one of the few surviving artefacts from one of the former Queensberry Houses, the previous one demolished in the 1930s to make way for the existing flats, also called Queensberry House. The view is thought to be of its north elevation, taken from the driveway of the Queensberry House grounds. Today, the restored gazebo is believed to serve as a small dwelling. It has had all the foliage removed to present the renovated brickwork and tiled roof. The window shown is thought to have been bricked in. Friars Lane marked the boundary between Richmond Palace and the House of Observant Franciscan Friars, established by Henry VII in 1499.
