Put simply, because we love where we live!
Richmond OnLine is the community website for Richmond, designed and maintained by Andrew Russell of Moonburst.
Started in 1999, Richmond OnLine was created to promote Richmond to a global audience, to encourage visitors to the town and to produce a centre of information for the local community.
Richmond OnLine is privately funded through advertising and sponsorship along with the continued input from Moonburst.
We are not linked to, or funded by, the RTC. Visit the Town Council Website (off-site link)
We are not linked to, or funded by, the RDC. Visit the Richmondshire District Council Website (off-site link)
We are not linked to English Heritage though we have some pages about English Heritage locations (e.g. Richmond Castle) using information supplied by them. The English Heritage logo is visible around the site on relevant pages.
Because of our unique relationship with Moonburst, we can offer very reasonable rates for advertising your business and becoming a partner. To advertise on this website contact the Richmond Online office. More information about advertising on Richmond OnLine can be found here.
Our logs indicate that the website is extensively used throughout, with visitors from all over the world as well as many local visitors.
