The Paul Welsh column: A wart from where?
Well we have survived another week, playmates, and so once again may I have the pleasure to once again take you down Memory Lane to Nostalgia Ridge so we can look over the horizon of yesteryear. Okay you have guessed it is my happy hour but that sounds nice. I often wonder what is the age profile of my readers. I suspect they generally are 60 plus or what we now call the middle aged.

Putney

Putney is a district in the London Borough of Wandsworth, situated 5 miles south-west of Charing Cross.

Putney was an ancient parish in the Brixton hundred of the county of Surrey.

For centuries, Putney was a place where Londoners came for leisure, to enjoy the open spaces and clean air. Londoners came to Putney to play games. According to John Locke, who writes, in 1679: "The sports of England for a curious stranger to see are horse-racing, hawking, hunting, and bowling; at Putney he may see several persons of quality bowling two or three times a week."

One regular visitor was Queen Elizabeth I who frequently visited Putney from 1579–1603, often visiting Mr John Lacy. She was said to "honour Lacy with her company more frequently than any of her subjects", often staying for two to three days.

Putney ferry was mentioned in the household accounts of Edward I (1272–1307): Robert the Ferryman of Putney and other sailors received 3/6d for carrying a great part of the royal family across the Thames and also for taking the king and his family to Westminster.

The first permanent bridge between Fulham and Putney was completed in 1729, and was the second bridge to be built across the Thames in London (after London Bridge).
The bridge was a wooden structure and lasted for 150 years, when in 1886 it was replaced by the stone bridge that stands today.

Putney station opened when the Nine Elms to Richmond line came into service on 27 July 1846

In 1855, Putney parish was included in the area of responsibility of the Metropolitan Board of Works and was grouped into the Wandsworth District. In 1889 the area was removed from Surrey and became part of the County of London. The Wandsworth District became the Metropolitan Borough of Wandsworth in 1900. Since 1965 Putney has formed part of the London Borough of Wandsworth.
