Rushlight Mews, KT9

Place Name

In 2015 the developer of a new private access road put forward three potential names in liaison with the Kingston Local History Officer: Rushlight Mews, Crossfield Mews and Cross Hill Mews in order of preference. A Kingston Council report states: “The preferred name refers to the location of Malden Rushett – Rushett means ‘a field of rushes/grassland’ and a rushlight is a ‘type of candle made with rushes’.”
