Our charity collects and preserves the unique heritage of Richmond Park, the largest of London’s Royal Parks, for all to enjoy.
We have a diverse range of heritage material covering the last four centuries, with some 5000 items including antique prints, paintings, maps, postcards, photographs, documents, books and press cuttings. These are being catalogued by volunteers from the Friends of Richmond Park.
The Collection, currently stored in unsatisfactory accommodation in Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, is overseen by volunteer and part-time staff. Plans are well advanced for a new purpose-built heritage centre to provide full public access to the Collection.Find out about the Richmond Park Heritage Pavilion at www.hearsumcollection.org.uk/our-vision-for-the-future
