Site: Richard Briers (1 memorial)

SW20, Worple Road, Pepys Court

Briers and his parents lived at a flat in Pepys Court. From BCS: "It was here that his love of showbusiness was first forged, with the local Rialto Cinema backing onto the rear garden of Pepys Court and affording Richard the opportunity to sneak in through a back door and watch the films on show during the period."
