Our journal, Richmond History

Richmond History is now a triple-award-winner

Our journal, Richmond History, has now received an award as London’s best local history journal for three years in a row.

At the London & Middlesex Archaeological Society (LAMAS)’s annual Local History Conference, held at the Museum of London Docklands in November 2023, our society received a certificate and a £100 prize for Richmond History 43 (our 2023 issue) which won in the Journal category at (LAMAS)’s Local History Publications Awards. The 2022 edition of The Streets of Richmond and Kew was a close runner-up in the books category.

LAMAS’s publications committee described Richmond History 42 (our 2021/22 issue), with its cover story on international tennis star Betty Nuthall, as “providing a winning mix of topics about the local catchment area, accompanied with good illustrations and photos”. Our journal, it said, was “entertaining, well referenced and easy to read”.

Copies of that issue, the previous award-winning issue (No. 41), and our current issue  (No. 43) – which has 98 pages, more than 30 in colour – are available, postage free in the UK, from our online bookshop. They can also be bought at Kew Bookshop, Sheen Bookshop in East Sheen, The National Archives’ shop and The Open Book in Richmond.

The latest issue of our journal, Richmond History 44, was published in November 2023. Find out more, and order a copy
