The Early 1870s


In the 1870s the pace of building in East Sheen slackened. A few more houses were built in the Upper Richmond Road. Ste Croix, later Sheen Wood was built next door to Percy Lodge by Frederick Walford. Mooresfoot and Parkholme were built in Fife Road, adjoining Sheen Common, for C. R. Besley and J. T. Woollwright respectively. Westhay was built for John Ball and Bressay House, later Greenfields for Sir Robert Hamilton near Christ Church.
