Our journal, Richmond History, published annually since 1985, contains many articles on all aspects of our local history. No. 41, our 2020 issue, can be purchased, postage free, online.

In its more than 40 years of publication, Richmond History has become the authoritative forum for research on Richmond, Kew, Ham and Petersham. If you are researching Richmond residents, local buildings or some other aspect of our rich history such as palaces, politics and poisoners, we’d be interested in publishing your work.
