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.

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