    6 Quirky Facts About Twickenham

    1. Early Twick
      Excavations into the earliest indications of settlement have revealed Neolithic homesteads. The area continued to show signs of life through the Saxon and Roman periods. The first written record appears in the 8th century when the Twickenham was ceded to Waldhere the Bishop of London “for the salvation of our souls”. So that’s ok, Twickenham’s souls are all taken care of.
    2. Folly
      In the 17th century the town had a ward whose job was to deal with ‘beggars, vagabonds and drunkards’, he was also in charge of the town stocks and whipping post. The town was also the site of several complaints made to the Mayor of London concerning an illegal floating pub moored out on the Thames called The Folly. “Complaining that there is lately fixed near the Shore of Twickenham on the River Thames a Vessell made like a Barge and called the Folly wherein divere loose and disorderly persons are frequently entertained.”
    3. Boom! Town
      Twickenham might not have been the perfect place to visit during the 1700’s. As well as the river boozer of ill repute, there were two less than appealing industries at work. The first was the Great Vitriol Works set up by the pharmacist Joshua Ward to produce ‘oil of vitriol’ also known as sulphuric acid. The production process had a less than desirable side effect, the smell of rotten eggs which covered the town. However, that was nothing compared to the opening of the world’s first industrial gunpowder production facility which experienced several explosions that flattened buildings and killed several workers and bystanders. One explosion was so severe it could be felt in Reading, 34 miles away!!!
    4. A Bit Arty
      Twickenham has long attracted artistic types, famous names to have lived there include; Charles Dickens, JMW Turner, Henry Fielding, Alfred Tennyson, Noel Coward, Brian May, Pete Townsend, Jane Horrocks, Nigel Planer, and Ian Broudie. Rod Stewart used to busk at Twickenham Station.
    5. King Of Twickenham
      After the assassination of King Carlos I of Portugal and his eldest son Luiz, 18 yr old Manoel became King Manoel II of Portugal. Less than two years later revolution broke out and the young King fled to Gibraltar and on to England where he settled in Twickenham, the town his mother had been born. He became a local celebrity and was appointed head of a number of societies in the area but never returned to his homeland.
    6. Funny Shaped Balls
      Twickenham is best known for being the home of English rugby, the stadium was once a cabbage farm, and today is affectionately known by England fans as the ‘cabbage patch’.
