Living in Wandsworth

Wandsworth has long been a draw for families searching for good schooling and plentiful parkland. The numerous commons in and around Wandsworth provide more public green open space than any other inner London boroughs. Wandsworth alone has over 1600 acres of public land which is almost five times the size of Hyde Park and provide a haven for a whole host of outdoor activities.

Wandsworth

Wandsworth is predominantly a residential area and lies along the south bank of the River Thames in the London Borough of Wandsworth. Wandsworth itself was named after the River Wandle, a small stream which flows into the Thames. Areas such as Bellevue Road and Northcote Road have grown into villages in their own rights with a fantastic array of local craft shops, restaurants, artisan market stalls, butchers, bakers and bars.

Transport links are found in the form of mainline railway stations at Clapham Junction, Wandsworth Common, Wandsworth Town, Balham, Battersea Park and Queenstown Road. An underground station is also found at Balham providing access on to the Northern line and also at Tooting Bec. Comprehensive bus services

History

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.
