A couple of days ago we had the "glimpse" of a boat house. Here is a glimpse of Orleans House - c1721 Orleans House link. Both "glimpses" can be seen from the riverside car park close to Ham House. One could visit Orleans House, and then cross by Hammerton's Ferry to see Ham House, and combine it with a walk along the river and a visit to a chosen Richmond cafe (all featured in RuTDP at some time over the 3 1/2 years of its existence).
Those of you who like to see such evocative photos of Richmond might like to look at Steve Morgan's work . He specialises in beautiful images of the Park.
These harmonious 17th and 18th C buildings sit so wonderfully in their landscapes. But it's easy to forget that this loveliness took 300 yrs to create!
