The namesake of the Belisha Beacon, and Minister of Transport from 1934 -1937 lived in Eynsford for some time at Bower House.

In 1934 he added beacons to pedestrian crossings, marked by large metal studs on the road surface. These crossings were later painted in black and white stripes, these are known as zebra crossings.
