Fulham Past .Initiated in 1971, the Society was formed after a small group of residents campaigned successfully to prevent the construction of a very large hotel which would have dominated the river frontage near All Saints Church and Putney Bridge.

This threat highlighted the need for an amenity society with a wide local brief .

Fulham is a desirable place in which to live so there is a constant pressure to tear down the old and rebuild . Care must be taken to prevent over development in density , scale and encroachment on public land.

The Fulham Society has continued to lobby, campaign, inform and influence the environment around us. To retain Fulham’s past the Society has campaigned to preserve historic buildings such as Fulham Palace , 17th Century Sandford Manor   and  the 18th century Fulham House and to maintain the integrity of the many conservation areas

Fulham lies within a great loop of the Thames. Until about 1880, when the District Line was extended,  it’s alluvial soil was cultivated largely as market gardens alongside the many grand mansions set within their own grounds such as Peterborough House, Hurlingham and Broomhouse.  The pleasing brick terraced houses, in which many of us live today were constructed on this land.

Civic pride and public generosity also provided impressive public buildings and churches . Some of these buildings are of special interest, the artists studios at Barons Court, the large Whiteley Warehouse at Avonmore Road, The Gunter Estate and The Peterborough Estate with it’s Lion Houses, Fulham Palace, Fulham Town Hall, St Johns and All Saints as well as listed phone boxes, post boxes war memorials and tombs.

The long river frontage, Bishops Park, South Park, Eel Brook Common, Parsons Green, Hurlingham Park and Imperial Park as well as many other smaller open spaces contain splendid trees and provide opportunities for leisure and recreation.

What a wonderful place to live.
