Kingston upon Thames, historically in Surrey, was an important market town, port and river crossing from the early medieval period, while there is evidence of Saxon settlement and of activity dating from the prehistoric period and of Roman occupation. It is close to the important historic royal estates at Hampton Court, Bushy Park, Richmond and Richmond Park. The old core of the town, around All Saints Church (C14 and C15, on an earlier site) and Market Place, with its recognisably medieval street pattern, is ‘the best preserved of its type in outer London’ (Pevsner and Cherry, London: South, 1983 p. 307). Kingston thrived first as an agricultural and market town and on its historic industries of malting, brewing and tanning, salmon fishing and timber exporting, before expanding rapidly as a suburb after the arrival of the railway in the 1860s. In the later C19 it become a centre of local government, and in the early C20 became an important shopping and commercial centre. Its rich diversity of buildings and structures from all periods reflect the multi-facetted development of the town.


Late C16 or early C17. Originally a public house, divided into three shops in the later C19. Two storeys, three bays wide. Timber framed with jettied upper floor. Modern shop fronts on the ground floor. Square headed sash windows to two left hand bays. Other modern oriel. The upper floors rendered in the C19. No.6 also has some C20 false timbering and a modern oriel bay window. Tiled roof with chimney stack between Nos. 6 and 8.
