Richmond Green

Saturday morning on Richmond Green. A return visit with another group. It's Crown Land leased to Richmond Council. Twelve acres surrounded by trees and an elegant mix of buildings. Hugely popular and charming.  It has been the venue for informal and formal games for hundreds of years, including archery tournaments in the 16th century, and now cricket, which began in the 18th century [John Webb].
