The village church of St Peter contains fragments of the 13th Century Chancel and retains its Georgian box pews. On the other side of the road from Forge Lane are the entrances to the Russell and German Schools and on to Ham Polo Grounds via Petersham Avenue which is one of the location scenes in Nicolas Nickleby by Charles Dickens who lived locally. River Lane leads down to the Thames towpath and Petersham Meadows. A footpath from the rear of Forge Lane leads round to Petersham Road near the gate into Petersham Park which leads on into the main expanse of Richmond Park. On the opposite side of Petersham Road is the Dysart Arms and the entrance into the famous Petersham Nurseries and Caf.
