Rik Mayall, 1958 - 2014, punched his friend in the balls on a bench near this spot.
True English Heritage
This temporary plaque (photo from GoWestLondon) was fixed near to the spot where the bench used in filming the opening credits for the television series 'Bottom' was located. The original bench had been removed, but after Mayall's death, a petition signed by about 7,000 fans persuaded Hammersmith and Fulham Council to instal a new one.
Site: Rik Mayall (2 memorials)
W6, Hammersmith Broadway, Junction with Queen Caroline Street
We revisited the site recently and noted that a lot of the 'tributes' (including the soiled underpants) have been removed.
