Putney is a district in South West London. It is an ancient parish with a church founded in the medieval period as a chapel of ease. Extensive building began with the advent of the railways; until the 1840s, Putney was a part-wooded agricultural village linked to Fulham by a wooden bridge across the Thames, and was a place where Londoners including Elizabeth 1st, came to enjoy outdoor pursuits including hawking, horse-racing and hunting. Later, in the 19th century, rowing became one of the most popular leisure activities due to the clean water at Putney.
There are more than twenty rowing clubs based at Putney Embankment, where the area is part of a conservation area. The University Boat Race has started from Putney since 1845. Putney is known as a lively and relatively affluent area, and is home to the largest number of Australians and New Zealanders in the UK.
Notable people born in Putney include Clement Atlee, post-war Labour politician and founder of the National Health Service, Marc Bolan, the singer, (who also died there in a motor accident) Sir Richard Branson, the entrepreneur, Thomas Cromwell, advisor to Henry 8th, and architect of the English Reformation, and Nick Clegg, former leader of the Liberal Democrat party.
