Barnes Commoners (copyholders of the manor) agree to sell 10 linear acres of the Common at £200 an acre.
This enables railway work to continue west, through market gardens between the Beverley Brook and the lane now called Vine Road, slicing through the market gardens of William Clifford and Charles Barker (now Vine Road recreation ground and The Elms).
The family of Joseph Pither plants a fruit tree at Vine Road to commemorate his contribution and love of the area.
Richmond Community Fund awards £29,000 for a Feasibility Study to develop a proposal, undertake public consultation and create detailed design for the Vine Road refurbishment project.
