Visit Putney: explore the history and visit our Totally Thames Outdoor Exhibition
We will meet in the Putney Pantry for coffee at 10.30am. The Putney Pantry is attached to St Mary's Church, at the bottom of Putney High Street on the South Side of the Bridge.
How to get here:
Trains to Putney Station, turn right out of the station and down the High Street as far as the Bridge. The Putney Pantry is on your right by the War Memorial and attached to the Church.
Underground to Putney Bridge Station: immediately outside the station take one of the 93, 493 or 14 buses across the bridge or basically it is just a short walk, with nice views on a good day!
While you are waiting for the walk to start, you might be interested in exploring St Mary's Church itself. A centre of Christian worship from at least the 13th Century, it is perhaps best know as the site of the 1647 Putney Debates, the first debates about the nature of democracy in England. You can read all about this period of time in a permanent exhibition in the church, as well as admiring the Church interior.
Please be ready to set off at 11.00am when the first port of call will be Thames Outdoor Exhibition. After this we will walk along the Thames Path visiting some of the points on the Putney Sculpture Trail ending with the South Side of Wandsworth Park. From here, we will return to Putney where we have a choice of places for lunch: The Prince of Wales, our usual “haunt” for SW London Meetings is one possibility, Pizza Express another, the newly refurbished Italian Boys near Mainline Station, another.
Look forward to seeing many of you there.
