St. Peter's Church
“A church of uncommon charm” is Pevsner’s comment on St Peter’s Church in The Buildings of England. London 2: South. The building is mainly of the 16th century with a 13th century chancel and a remarkably well preserved pre-Victorian interior with Georgian box pews and a double-decker pulpit.
The church’s Archivist, Jean Allsopp, will give a talk on the history of St Peter’s and a half-hour tour of the historic graveyard and its many notable tombs, including that of George Vancouver.
Meet at St Peter’s in Church Lane at 10:30 am. Buses 65 and 371 stop at The Dysart nearby. Parking is difficult in Church Lane itself but there should be space in River Lane, Cedar Heights or behind the Fox and Duck pub.
Cost: £2 for Richmond Local History Society members; £4 for members’ guests. Pay on the day, but please let Judith Church know in advance if you are coming. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel 020 8940 3484.
