Bridge House’s claim to fame is that it was home to William Wynn Westcott, surgeon, who lived there from 1870 until 1880. He practised as a doctor in Martock, and was a well known writer on medical, masonic and esoteric subjects. He was best known as the co-founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and as a suspect for Jack the Ripper!

Westcott was deputy coroner for central London from 1881 until 1918, as well as being Chief Magician of the Golden Dawn and a senior Freemason.
