"Denmark Hill resident, Sir Henry Bessemer invented the first anti-sea sickness ship. This was done by hanging a large weight under the main hall where passengers gathered so it stayed upright as the ship rolled. Sadly, once at sea, the ship proved impossible to steer and crashed into a pier at Calais."
