A new information board celebrating the history of Radnor Gardens in Strawberry Hill will soon be installed.

Placed in the middle of the gardens near the Summer House, it will include information and photographs citing the history of the area since the mid-nineteenth century.

The gardens were originally split into two with links to several properties dating back to the 17th century - Radnor House, Cross Deep House and Cross Deep Hall.

Several remnants of these form features of the modern gardens, also involving the base of Radnor House and two structures, a gazebo and a Grade II listed polygonal summer house.

The gardens now have a First World War memorial, grass area, bowling green and pavilion, a café and children’s playground.

It is in partnership with the Friends of Radnor Gardens.

Councillor Lisa Blackmore, Mayor of Richmond, said: “We know that our parks and open spaces are so important to residents in our borough.

“It is important to remember that many of them have a unique and special history in the local area.

“Radnor Gardens is a traditional style park. It is popular, not just for its beauty, flora and fauna but also its stunning view of the River Thames.

“This board aims to celebrate and commemorate the history of the park and I hope that many people find the information interesting and informative.”
