History of Wandsworth

A saxon tribal leader called Wendel gave his name to the river Wandle and possibly to Wandsworth (Wendelsworth meaning the place of Wendel). Wandsworth remained a quaint village outside London till mid 19th century when it gradually got swallowed up by the metropolis. In the 19th century, the corn mills in Wandsworth were supplying the majority of the flour for London. It also had a few breweries, Young’s brewery in Wandsworth is on the same site it was in 1675, although owned by a different family. Gradually, the market gardens disappeared, the grand houses were demolished and mcuh of the open spaces were built over.

Untill the 80s, Wandsworth was a little run down. Afterwhich, more affluent families settled in this leafy borough with many open spaces. It has a large choice of period properties from Victorian to 30s houses. Many of the properties are on quiet streets and have large gardens. It has a good choice of restauranst and bars, particularly on Bellevue and Northcote Road. It has excellent transport links and generally attracts affluent families with children.
