Title
Houses on the Twickenham Embankment
Description
This three-quarter view shows the rear and side elevations 23 The Embankment, a two-storey house in the Twickenham Riverside conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames built in the early eighteenth-century. It was Grade II listed in 1952; listing number 1080816. Taken soon after extensive renovation work, a stakeboard shows the house as having been sold recently by Barnes & Barnes of 40 Hill Rise Richmond. Part of the adjoining house at 22 The Embankment is also visible to the right of the building. Of similar age and construction, it was also Grade II listed in 1952; listing number 1358071. The pitched tiled roof, small single dormer, external chimney stack, and neatly restored ground floor brickwork are well illustrated. The neighbouring site shown in the foreground to the right of view was once occupied by a four-storey house, demolished in the 1950s. It has since been resurfaced to provide residential parking and a thoroughfare to the riverside and Mary Wallace Theatre, home of the Richmond Shakespeare Society, which occupies the remodelled site shown beyond. The overgrown site to the left is now occupied by Flood Lane. Just visible in the background are the boatyards and trees of Eel Pie Island on the River Thames.
