Arcadian Archives: Richmond upon Thames Local Studies Collection

As the only London Borough to span the Thames, it is appropriate that Richmond’s archives are housed in the Old Town Hall overlooking the river.  The same stretch of river along which Elizabeth I would have travelled between her local palaces at Hampton Court and Richmond, and which generations of market gardeners from Barnes, Mortlake, Twickenham, and Hampton used to transport their produce to London.  The spectacular landscape formed by the river and many green open spaces inspired local residents including Alexander Pope and JMW Turner to christen the area, Arcadia, in reference to the ancient Greek idea of utopia.

The story of this unique locale is told in the archives at the Local Studies Collection, which include local authority records from 1596 to the present day, workhouse admissions, building plans, business records, and personal papers.
