  • Integral part of the view from Richmond Hill protected by an Act of Parliament in 1902. There have been cattle grazing here on the Thames floodplain since the 19C and probably lot earlier. Was a working dairy farm but now managed by the National Trust with seasonal grazing usually from May to October. Footpaths across from Petersham Church (St Peters) and from the Petersham gate which goes into Richmond Park. Also visible from Thames Towpath which skirts the meadow beyond a low flood wall. About halfway between Richmond Bridge and Ham House which is a lovely walk.
  • Beautiful meadows by the river Thames. Free parking and a gravel slipway for swimming and boating.
