Bushy Park  Middlesex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Bushy Park like this:

BUSHY-PARK, a royal park in Teddington parish, Middlesex; on the Thames, adjacent to Hampton. It comprises 1,110 acres; and includes all the enclosures belonging to Hampton Court, except the Home Park. Nine avenues are in it, of chestnuts and limes, noted for beauty and magnificence. A right of passage through it having been withheld from the public, was recovered by the exertions of an humble resident at Hamptonwick. ...

The house in it is a square brick structure, erected by the Earl of Halifax, and much improved by William IV.; and was occupied occasionally by George IV., and much by William IV. and his dowager Queen. There is a post office of Bushy-Park under Hampton, London, SW. There is also, on the London and Kingston railway, a station of Teddington and Bushy-Park.
