    6 Quirky Facts About Wandsworth

    1. Neighbourhood Watch
      Wandsworth has attracted the great and the good to its leafy streets. That unfinished novel you keep promising to get around to? There’s no excuse, Mary Shelley, Voltaire, Daniel Defoe, William Thackery and Thomas Hardy all lived and composed in Wordsworth. In more recent years, Mark Owen, Frank Bruno, Marc Bolan, Sir Richard Branson, Sophie Dahl, Jamie Cullum, Kevin Spacey and Keira Knightley have all called Wandsworth ‘home’.
    2. Big Metal Horse
      Opening in 1803, Surrey Iron Railway was the world’s first public railway and ran from Wandsworth to Merstham, Surrey. 9 miles might not seem a big deal to modern commuters but at the time the idea was revolutionary and paved the way (or lined the tracks) for modern passenger railways across the globe.
    3. Life on Mars
      Tooting isn’t an overtly alien environment (unless the office Christmas parties are in full swing), but actually Tooting is alien, at least the one on Mars is. Local planetary expert Pete Mouginis-Mark named a 28km crater ‘Tooting’ as he thought his mum and brother would “get a kick out of having their home town paired with a land form on Mars”.
    4. How Common!
      Covering 69 hectares (171.6 acres), Wandsworth Common contains over 3,500 trees, amphibious wetlands and acid grassland (which is home to rare plants and creates habitat for solitary bees and wasps). The Common was created in 1871 thanks to the Wandsworth Common Act following attempts by the 4th Earl Spencer to sell off large tracts of land, which met with opposition from the locals. Today’s modern inhabitants have one of London’s best parks to enjoy.
    5. A Bridge Too Far
      Wandsworth was originally a crossing point for the River Wandle, a tributary of the Thames. Modern Wandsorth has 8 bridges crossing London’s mighty river including Battersea, Chelsea, Fulham Railway Bridge, Putney Bridge and Wandsworth Bridge which has the dubious honour of having been described by many as ‘London’s most boring bridge’. Bit rude.
    6. Beery Good Show!
      Wandsworth is home to one of the UK’s largest breweries, Youngs. Established in 1831 when the Ram Brewery was bought by Charles Young and Anthony Bainbridge. Formerly a pint-sized operation (you can leave our Pulitzer by the door!), Youngs now own over 200 pubs around the country. They stand in good tradition, the earliest records of beer being brewed in the area date back to 1550. So, sampling beer in Wandsworth isn’t an indulgence, it’s merely exploring the borough’s rich and varied history. Cheers!
