Penton Hook Island, Chertsey: Lillian Stevens 25.02.1926 – 29.05.2007

Penton Hook Island is a lovely and interesting spot in the River Thames between Chertsey and Staines.  Managed for wildlife the island has a network of paths through the trees and is popular with local walkers.  The island was formed by Penton Hook Lock being constructed across a loop in the river.

This bench to Lillian Stevens has a view over the River Thames and is a lovely place to rest.  The bench overlooks the spot where very sadly in 2010 two young men drowned trying to save their pet dog from the river.

We were at Penton Hook Island on a lovely sunny day and it was easy to see why Lillian Stevens loved the island and this part of the River Thames.
