Where-it-it--#80

Can you identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of ? If you think you can, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer next week. Good luck!

Apologies for the delay in getting the answer up. But the answer is that this can be found on a monument outside an entrance to the Royal Park of Bushy Park located in Hampton Wick, in London’s west. The monument is erected to the memory of a Hampton Wick shoemaker, Timothy Bennet, who led a campaign to establish a public right of way through the park which in 1752 had been enclosed by Lord Halifax. Bennet, whose business had been adversely affected by the enclosure, won his bid to have the footpath created (he died two years later) and Cobbler’s Walk still exists, running from Sandy Lane in Hampton Wick through the park to High Street in Hampton Hill. Thanks Timothy Bennet!
