Logo Richmond Local History Soc


The Richmond Local History Society’s new book, a fully revised edition of The Streets of Richmond and Kew, was published in January 2019 and is now available at £10 in local bookshops – Kew Bookshop, Lloyds of Kew Bookshop, The National Archives’ bookshop, The Open Book in King Street, Richmond, and the Museum of Richmond,

Many Society members, including the late David Blomfield, contributed to this new edition (the first in 29 years), which has 140 pages and includes a full-colour map. Comprehensive and up to date, it describes how each of Richmond and Kew’s streets was named and their wider significance for our local area’s history
