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
