Plaque

Benny Hill

Inscription

Benny Hill, 1925 - 1992, comedian.
Comic Heritage

Site: Teddington Studios - riverfront (12 memorials)

TW11, Thames Walkway, Behind Broom Road

These plaques were originally located on the buildings of the Teddington Studios in Broom Road. The studios were closed and demolished in 2016, and the plaques were eventually moved here. The Mirror reported that some of these plaques had been pinched just prior to the demolition, but they have since been replaced.

Actually, look closely and you'll see that the plaques here are different from the ones we photographed on the old Teddington Studio building, similar but not the same.

Wikipedia gives the architects as "Davis and Emanuel Pevsner". We believe the "Pevsner" to be an error, that has been widely copied.
