Timothy Bennet Memorial Refurbished

Timothy Bennet Memorial

For over a year the memorial to local hero Timothy Bennet has been in a sorry state. The railings were broken and the area was overgrown and litter strewn.

After many months of persistent lobbying led by HWA Chairman Mark Merrington, Thames Water, who own the site, have carried out much needed refurbishments.

Timothy Bennet was a shoemaker in Hampton Wick in the 18th century. When Bushy Park was closed to the public in 1754, Bennet campaigned until the Earl of Halifax had to cave in and re-open it, allowing people an easy route between Hampton and Hampton Wick. To this day there is a footpath in Bushy Park called Cobblers Way.
