Bambers Steps at Richmond

Bambers Steps at Richmond have been named after Thames-side resident Bamber Gascoigne who died two years ago today.

The television personalty, known for his role in University Challenge, lived by the river in Richmond and often swam from the steps.

The water access is found at the end of the length of towpath known as Cholmondeley Way at its meeting with Friars Lane just before The White Cross pub.
