The Vineyard

The Vineyard is a street in Richmond, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It includes three groups of almshouses,[1][2][3] a Grade II listed church (St Elizabeth of Portugal Church)[4] and Clarence House, a 17th-century Grade II listed house associated with Bernardo O’Higgins,[5][6] who is commemorated on the wall of the property with a blue plaque, installed by English Heritage, for his role in the Chilean War of Independence.[6][nb 1]
