Richmond Upon Thames

Rather upmarket area where Bernoulli can't afford to live anymore. Downstream from Walton-on-Thames.

Used to be marvellously seedy, until they built the Riverside development and destroyed the local character. The area on which it was built used to support, among other things, a battered wive's home, a really nasty Skinhead night club called "Snoopy's", and lots of derelict housing that made a nice shooting gallery for the local junkies. Oh, and the Town Hall.

Military connections.

  • Annual Army and Navy rugby match is played down the road in Twickenham.
  • Kneller School of music is nearby. Bandy's school, although I don't know if it is still open.
  • Admiralty Research Labs used to be in Teddington, later became National Physics Laboratory. Famed for doing a number on the local Stoners by projecting images of planets onto the cloudbase.
