Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

Brick by Brick - the building and buildings of Hampton Wick

This was a fascinating talk covering the development of Hampton Wick from 1750, population of about 500 to the present day. There have been 3 phases to this project covering 650 residential buildings in the village, recording when they were built and who has lived in them. There are now 3 books and an interactive website – Hampton Wick History

Ray also included additional information and old maps of Bushy and Home Parks which were new to most of the audience!
