Mr Benn cartoon series began off Thames Path

An engraved paving stone has been laid in the pavement outside 54 Festing Road in Putney where David McKee created the Mr Benn cartoon series.

David, who now lives in France, called the street Festive Road and has Mr Benn living next door at number 52.

Festing Road is the last turning off Putney’s Embankment before the Thames Path crosses Beverley Brook.
