Brockwell Park Dog Show 2017: The Mystery of the Brockwell Park Dog Show

The theme for this year’s Brockwell Park Dog Show is ‘Mystery of the Brockwell Park Dog Show’. What’s that all about we hear you ask … is it a detective theme? We asked Lily, show organiser, to explain!

Who was Thomas Lynn Bristowe?

Who was Thomas Bristowe?

Yes, we live in contentious times so "public servant" scrutiny is always a good idea. Was he in it for the dosh?

But this is much more. This is about the man who may well be Mr Herne Hill. 

Third son of John Syer Bristowe, a doctor of Camberwell, Thomas Lynn Bristowe was an English stock broker and Conservative Party politician and MP for Norwood.

He is also the father of Brockwell Park!
