    5 Amazing Facts About Putney

    1. Wood You Adam n Eve it?
      In the 1840s Putney was a partly wooded area, mostly used for agriculture and feeding the city of London. For most folk getting to the city required crossing an old wooden bridge into Fulham. It was around this time that London was expanding and Putney soon become a hive of engineering including the College for Civil Engineers. Putney also had much better and cleaner water than its London neighbours, which attracted the middle classes as they moved out of the crowded inner city.
    2. Game On
      Before the well-to-do started moving in, Putney, with it’s wide-open spaces, was where Londoners would escape to and play sports. In 1679 John Locke wrote; “The sports of England for a curious stranger to see are horse-racing, hawking, hunting, and bowling; at Putney he may see several persons of quality bowling two or three times a week.”
    3. A Bridged
      In 1792 Putney Bridge became only the second solid construction crossing the Thames (London Bridge being the first). Previously a temporary bridge has been built by Lord General Hath using boats tied together to allow Parliamentarian troops and artillery to cross the river safely during the English Civil War. Forts were erected at either end to protect the bridge from the King’s forces and it was guarded by musketeers and seamen. The current stone bridge was built in 1886.
    4. The Heath
      Covering 400 acres, as well as being a playground for Londoners seeking greener pastures, Putney Heath was a favoured spot for duels. Gentlemen and their seconds would head to the heath, away from anyone who might choose to intervene. Even William Pitt, who was then the Prime Minister of England once fought a ‘bloodless dual’ in Putney. It was also a hunting ground for highwaymen (and women, as long before the ‘Me Too’ movement, highway robbery was an equal opportunity gig). One robber who things didn’t go so well for was Jeremiah Abershaw who was caught in a local pub, the Green Man, put on trial and condemned to hang. After execution his body hung in chains above the heath as a warning to others.
    5. The Putney Debates
      At St Mary’s Church in 1647, officers of Cromwell’s New Model Army met with MPs to discuss the future of England in what became known as The Putney Debates. Concerned that the monarchy was being replaced by rich men hungry for power, the army were keen to ensure that the removal of the King made England a fairer place for the common man. The movement known as the Levellers were mostly soldiers, conscripted to the army and forced to fight in a war many believed wouldn’t benefit the lower classes. Many Levellers were hunted and executed by Cromwell and his officers. Their radical and dangerous ideas included; One man – one vote, democratically elected MPs, freedom from conscription and equality of law.  Colonel Rainsborough, the highest-ranking officer supporting the movement famously said “I think that the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live, as the greatest he.” The Putney Debates and agreements reached formed the basis of much of the common-law that still stands today in England. They were also used as a blueprint for the American constitution.

    About Putney

    Arguably the home of modern democracy, it was in Putney in 1647 that the ‘common man’ laid down the law to the great and the good of the day (who had already toppled the King), to ensure one man, one vote and a fairer England. Yes, Putney might not seem like the obvious location but this unassuming suburb laid the blueprint for much of England’s laws and even the American constitution. It really is a surprising place, packed with great independent stores, artisan eats, good culture, fine dining and nights out, plus everything you need for nights in. There’s also plenty of open, green space and handy transport links to and from the city.

    Leisure

There’s a cinema, gyms, leisure centre, theatre, galleries, great shops and a wide variety of sports facilities.
