Putney Bridge


Putney Bridge was recorded as Putelei in the Domesday Book and the name is derived from the Saxon personal name Puttan and Old English hyp, 'a landing place' - 'Puttan's wharf. This was one of many such landing places on the River Thames. The original wooden bridge was erected in 1729 and replaced by the present stone bridge in 1884-86. It was widened in 1933.

The station was opened on 1 March 1880 as PUTNEY BRIDGE & FULHAM; re-named PUTNEY BRIDGE & HURLINGHAM 1 September 1902; PUTNEY BRIDGE 1932.
