Wandsworth takes its name from the River Wandle, which enters the Thames here. Wandsworth appears in the Domesday book of 1086 as Wandesorder and Wendelesorde. Since at least the early 16th century, Wandsworth has offered accommodation to consecutive waves of immigration including Protestant Dutch metalworkers fleeing persecution in the 1590s. The heart of Wandsworth, between the town centre and the river, is the site of Young & Co's Ram Brewery, where traditional draught beer had, until recently, been produced for 425 years. It now forms part of the large scale redevelopment and regeneration of the area.
