Mr Benn Mr Benn

Plaque: Mr Benn

Erection date: 28/11/2009


Festive Road, home of David McKee and his creation, Mr Benn.

Site: Mr Benn (1 memorial)

SW15, Festing Road, 52

The memorial is actually in the pavement at the junction of Festing Road and Lower Richmond Road. Our map pin is at number 54, the house where David McKee the author lived. Number 52, next door, is where he housed Mr Benn, at 52 "Festive" Road. Perhaps he didn't like him well enough to actually room with him.

The current occupant of no 54, Hugh Thompson, organised the plaque and raised £500 for it from local residents. He was also kind enough to point it out to us when we turned up expecting to find it outside his house.
