AGM & Talk: Derek Robinson on the Museum of Richmond’s exhibition on the history of Old Palace Lane, followed by drinks and nibbles
Old Palace Lane runs up from the Thames past Asgill House and the White Swan pub, along what was once the wall of Richmond Palace to the Green. Once known as Crane Piece, the Lane was originally for supplies from the River Thames to the Palace. A row of Georgian workers’ cottages sits alongside larger Regency and Victorian family houses, making a unique and attractive townscape.
The story of the Lane, which begins in the medieval period, mirrors the development of Richmond over the centuries, and the exhibition will illustrate, in microcosm, the growth of the town since its early beginnings.
