Famous Residents of Note

Eynsford had been home to a number of famous residents.

This section will be updated in due course.

Percy Pilcher

Percy Pilcher (1866-1899) was an aviation pioneer who tested many of his gliders and flying machines around Eynsford. Unfortunately he had an early death demonstrating one of his machines.

There is a monument to Percy Pilcher which was erected by the Eynsford Village Society at Upper Austin Lodge. Further information can be found here.
