Five reasons why the bridge should be located at Radnor Gardens;

1.) The topology on both sides at this point is most suited to a bridge crossing of the river. When the bridge starts from the proposed new mini-roundabout on Cross Deep (see details on our blogsite http://radnorbridge.blogspot.co.uk/ ) then it only needs to rise 2m to clear sailing masts at high tide below.

2.) The location fits best with the landscape strategy for both sides of the river and as a key piece of infrastructure will prove to be the strategic link in the heart of Richmond Borough, offering benefits to the greatest number of residents and reducing the need for numerous cyclists to enter Twickenham town centre or cars to be on the road

3.) At this point the best leisure pursuits access for short river strollers is offered. It is the midway point between Richmond bridge and Teddington Lock and will not challenge access via Hammerton Ferry. Indeed we believe it will encourage greater usage of the ferry boat crossing.

4.) It will connect Ham House to Strawberry Hill House, making for a lovely tourism attraction. And the adventurous may also then choose to complete the circle of all four local Houses with the addition of York House and Marble Hill House.

5.) Strawberry Hill station is the closest station (as the crow flies) for people who live in Ham.


We're sure others can think of many additional reasons/benefits for the Radnor Gardens location... but hopefully this is a useful starter.

Radnor Bridge representative, Mark Wing, attended the Leader’s Question Time event last week held at the Stoop. He took the opportunity to ensure Radnor Bridge had not been forgotten and to ask that a formal discussion about it be included within the Village Planning documents and discussions.

The following is transcribed from a recording of the question Mark put to the panel and the ensuing discussion /responses that followed.

Some great trade secrets and a few funnies :)

It's about 40 minutes long but well worth listening to all the way through. Why not make yourself a cuppa and tune in.

Julie Bishop interviewed me on the subject of "Is It Important To Have A Personal Brand These Days? The full #‎blab interview is a bit long, but well worth listening to. I suggest you put the kettle on then sit back and listen. It can be found here: ‪‬
