SITE DETAILS

Waterman's Green Wandsworth

Summary

Putney Bridge Shrubbery at the south-west corner of Putney Bridge was formed on land purchased in connection with the erection of Putney Bridge in 1882-6 by Sir Joseph Bazalgette, which replaced an earlier bridge of 1727-9. The site is railed with grass, trees and shrubs. It was formerly the responsibility of the LCC and later passed to LB Wandsworth. It is deemed too small to be open to the public. In c.2004 it was renamed Waterman's Green.
