Park Timeline

This timeline is inspired by the desire to explore the rich and varied history of Richmond Park.  The aim is to identify interesting stories relating to this special place, and to make them more accessible to a wider public via new online and social media content.

The timeline has been researched and compiled by volunteers from the Friends of Richmond Park, through investigation of the resources of the Hearsum Collection and the National Archives. It is published online with the support of the staff of the Hearsum Collection, and is part of a continuing process of researching and sharing stories from the history of the park.
