  1. About Ham

    Ham is a place in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames on the River Thames. Its name derives from the Old English word Hamme meaning place in the bend in the river. Together with Petersham, Ham lies to the east of the bend in the river south of Richmond and north of Kingston. It is connected to Teddington by Teddington Lock Footbridge at Teddington Lock and, during the summer months Hammerton's Ferry, a pedestrian ferry, links to Marble Hill House, Twickenham. Neighbouring settlements include Petersham and Richmond, and on the opposite side of the river (linked by the lock and the ferry) Teddington, Strawberry Hill and Twickenham. A riverside path runs along the whole of this stretch of the bank between Richmond and Kingston.
