Lowewood Museum is now under the management of the Lowewood Museum Trust; a new charitable incorporated organisation. In this series of posts, meet the members of the Trust Board, with this article featuring Bryan Hewitt.
Bryan Hewitt was born in 1959 in the same house as his father. Actually he lives in the same street in Waltham Cross where his family has lived for over a hundred years!
He has been working for the Lee Valley Regional Park , based at Myddelton House Gardens in Enfield, for 37 years where Bryan is their first Gardener/Historian. His interest in the Borough’s history was sparked by his father and encouraged by his early friendship with the legendary local historian Jack Edwards and later by Cheshunt historian Peter Rooke, both of whom became close personal friends.
A keen local actor for 50 years , he won the adjudicator’s award for best actor in the Hertford Theatre Week 1990. He is a member of Broxbourne Theatre Company and Potters Bar Theatre Company .
Bryan was a committee member of The Friends of Lowewood Museum for 10 years and is the author of “The Crocus King :E A Bowles of Myddelton House” (The Rockingham Press, 1997 , republished and updated 2017 ).
