A Little Bit About Teddington
The first permanent settlement in Teddington was in Saxon times. Teddington was not mentioned in the Domesday book as it was included under the Hampton entry.
Teddington Manor was first owned by Benedictine monks in Staines and it is believed they built a chapel dedicated to St. Mary on the same site as today’s St. Mary’s Church. In 971, a charter gave the land in Teddington to the Abbey of Westminster.
The Hampton Court gardens were erected in 1500 in preparation for the planned rebuilding of a 14th-century manor to form Hampton Court Palace in 1521 and were to serve as hunting grounds for Cardinal Wolsey and later Henry VIII and his family. In 1540 some common land of Teddington was enclosed to form Bushy Park and acted as more hunting grounds.
Bushy House was built in 1663 and Bushy Park became home to Teddington Cricket Club. From this stemmed Teddington Hockey Club in 1871, which was responsible for introducing important rules of the modern game including the striking circle and the “sticks” rule.
Teddington Studios has been the home of many classic British TV shows including Men Behaving Badly, Morecombe and Wise Show, The Benny Hill Show, George and Mildred, This Is Your Life and Opportunity Knocks.
Today Teddington is mostly residential but is bisected by an almost continuous road of shops, offices and other facilities running from the river to Bushy Park.
