What makes Putney so special?
Putney has many benefits. For starters, it’s only a short distance from Richmond, another area with a picturesque riverside location in south-west London. Putney’s position along the Thames provides great views and delightful walks. It’s a great contrast to the pace of life just north of the river in Fulham, the West End, Soho and beyond.
The current Putney Bridge was opened in May, 1886. The bridge is overlooked by two beautiful churches on both banks, All Saints Church Fulham and St Mary’s Church Putney. Putney High Street connects with the bridge and leads up past Putney station to Putney Hill.
When you head up Putney Hill you come to Putney Heath. This historic 400-acre area of scrub and open land is popular for dog walks and weekend picnics and connects with Wimbledon Common to the south and Richmond Park to the west.
So, a riverside location like Putney can blend London living with all the benefits of open green spaces which are great for our wellbeing and family life.
