Twickenham Society Talks:
Puritans, Royalists, Quakers, Huguenots, slave owners, factory owners, military men and many more amazing people all go towards making up the history of a house that stood in the very centre of Twickenham for more than three hundred and fifty years. Yet it's a house that very few people have even heard of – Richmond House. And where was this house? On Twickenham Riverside, opposite Eel Pie Island, where the old swimming pool used to be. This is the second lecture in this series, following on Sue's very well-received talk on 21st February.
Twickenham Society Chairman Doug Orchard adds, "We will have a meeting towards the end of June or the beginning of July by local author and photographer Jil Orpen on her new book, 'People of the Thames'. That will also be a joint meeting with the River Thames Society.
