This is a guide to Richmond Park for walkers. It contains numerous maps of the park as it was at the time of its enclosure in 1637, in 1754, in 1876 and today. There are sketch maps of the park as it is today and sections of the 11 listed walks. The book helps readers to learn: where to look for prehistoric remains; where to find traces of medieval roads, fields, boundaries, hedgerows, coppices and ploughing; what or where the Tudor White Conduit is; where farms and other buildings stood before the royal park was created in 1637, or what they may have looked like; who championed the people's right of access and where; and where a 12-acre hospital stood during World War I. The book includes line drawings of four buildings in the park at the time of the enclosure, as well as 15 illustrations of other features in the park that have either disappeared or changed. The appendices cover trees, the ponds, the deer and the bird life of the park.
