Azaleas With A Medieval Connection
You might ask: where’s the medieval connection? Well, having lived in London a number of years myself, I too had Richmond Park on my itinerary for the occasional trip out of the city ‘smog’. It was always a wonderfully pleasant place to go and get away for a few hours. So I know a little about its history. Although there is no castle within Richmond Park itself, the land does have royal connections dating back to the 13th century when it was known as the Manor of Sheen. Indeed, Richmond Park is the largest "Royal Park" in London and covers 2,500 acres.
