Stag in Bushy Park
Bushy was one of the three parks enclosed by Cardinal Wolsey in the early 16th century as part of his Hampton Court estate which was built from 1515 and given to Henry VIII along with the palace in 1525. In 1638-9 Charles I had a tributary of the River Colne diverted through Bushy Park to form the Longford River, bringing water right into the grounds of Hampton Court Palace. This provided a water supply for the various water features in Bushy Park as well. Numerous smaller ponds and other water features in Bushy Park have been added at various times since the 16th century.

Like the far better-known Richmond Park Bushy Park has some magnificent deer. This is one of the stags not far from the Diana Fountain.
