Thames Landscape Strategy: Pastoral Arcadia
for the London Borough of Richmond
Ten years after the launch of the Thames Landscape Strategy 2004, the London Borough of Richmond has been successful in its Heritage Lottery Fund bid for the London’s Arcadia project. Kim Wilkie was commissioned in March 2004 to work on the design for the rural reaches of the Arcadia project looking at ways of enhancing public involvement in the complete riverside landscape.
Stretching from Richmond Hill to Radnor Gardens the project looks at combining the bustling urban waterfronts and grazed wet meadows to create a landscape that welcomes both people and wildlife.
