History...

The 17th and 18th century saw the development of large houses outside London, with Ham having an above average collection of such beautiful houses for a small rural settlement.

In 1637, Charles 1st created Richmond Park for hunting. Today it is the largest open space in Greater London, covering almost 2,500 acres, and has free roaming herds of Fallow and Red Deer and is accessed locally through Ham Gate at the top of Ham Gate Avenue and the wooded copses to each side are still considered to form part of Ham Common.

 

The late 1960's saw other developments in what previously had been the gardens of larger buildings. Mornington Walk was formerly part of the garden of Gordon House, which is only around the corner from Lock Road.

 

The rural feel of Ham and the protection of the open spaces have become more and more of an attraction to potential residents over time, and is now one of the main reasons for people choosing to move into Ham. In addition to the river on the west side and Richmond Park on the east, the character of Ham is now further protected by the delineation of three conservation areas.
