Putney is to the south west of central London. In the 19th century, before it was part of London, it belonged to the county of Surrey. It was mostly woodland with some agriculture and was connected to Fulham by a wooden bridge over the River Thames. But its history is much older than that. Records of the area go back to 1067, when it was referred to as Putelei. It had a ferry and toll for those crossing the Thames. As early as the 13th century there are writings that mention ‘Robert the Ferryman of Putney.
The first bridge there was, in fact, made of interconnected barges and was intended to carry the army and its artillery across the river during the English Civil War. In 1729, the first permanent bridge was built. The wooden structure lasted 150 years and was replaced with the stone bridge that still stands today in the mid 19th century. Putney’s location along the river, makes water sports very popular and there are a number of rowing clubs based there. The famous Henley Boat Race commences at Putney every year and has done so since the mid 19th century.
Not only does Putney have the benefit of the riverbank, but it also encompasses part of Richmond park and has Putney Heath within its boundaries. It has other popular green area including Wandsworth Park, parts of the London Wetlands, King George’s Park and Wimbeldon and Putney commons all available for the enjoyment of the community. Once an industrial area and home to the College for Civil Engineers, Putney is now a very pretty, leafy location with upmarket developments as well as the large homes that were built when it was a destination for wealthy Londoners wishing to enjoy outdoor pursuits.
