Situated in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is Barnes, and up-and-coming area that centres around a wide variety of arts and shopping outlets. Beautiful architecture of 18th and 19th century buildings are a feature in nearby Barnes Pond and the Barnes Village conservation area on the riverside. On the east side of the River Thames is Barn Elms playing fields, the WWT London Wetland Centre and the Barnes Trail woodland.
Barnes is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as ‘Berne’ and was held by the Canons of St Paul of London. The Norman chapel in the village church in Barnes, St Mary’s, was built somewhere between 1100 and 1150, being extended in the 13th century. A feature of Barnes is the fabulous housing on The Terrace, believed to be examples of the oldest riverside housing in London. The Georgian mansions are along the west bend of the River Thames and were built from 1720, including the building of the original red brick police station in 1891. Whilst this building is now flats, much of its original features remain. Rose House, a lovely pink-fronted house that dates back to the 17th century faces Barnes Pond, whilst Milbourne House which once belonged to Henry Fielding, faces Barnes Green and is the area’s oldest house with parts dating back to the 16th century. The grounds of the former manor house of Barnes, Barn Elms, is now an open space and playing field, and is home to one of the largest and oldest plane trees in London, as well as being one of the Great Trees of London. Barnes Railway Bridge is Grade II listed and was originally built by Joseph Locke in 1849. The Thames Path National Trail is a popular public promenade which runs along the bend of the River Thames, which also forms part of the Championship Course for rowing.
Barnes is well-known for a range of landmarks including the Barnes Trail, Bolan’s Rock Shrine which is the site of rock musician’s Marc Bolan’s fatal car crash on Queen’s Ride in 1977, OIympic Studios on Church Road that has not only been a cinema but also a leading recording studio which has been host to a wide variety of rock and pop stars including The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Queen, Eric Clapton, Harry Nilsson, Duran Duran, Led Zeppelin, Madonna, Jimi Hendrix and Madonna. The Bull’s Head pub is one of the first, and most important, jazz venues in post-war Britain and the OSO Arts Centre, which was originally the postal sorting office, was redeveloped and opened in 2002, is a key venue for fringe theatre and art, as well as hosting theatre productions, auctions and exhibitions. The area around Barnes Pond features open air and covered markets on a monthly basis, and Barnes Green hosts Barnes Fair in July every year.
