Cobbler's Walk

A footpath through Bushy Park named Cobbler's Way records Timothy Bennet's campaign in 1754 for free access through the park between Hampton Wick and Hampton Town's End. This, and other paths had effectively been closed in 1734 when the 2nd Earl of Halifax had enclosed the park within a wall.
Timothy Bennet had his business at Hampton Wick. He became much exercised by the inconvenience caused to residents by the closure. Those living in Hampton Wick had to take a longer walk to go to church in Hampton and Hampton residents found Kingston Market a longer journey.
