Putney

In the vicinity of this station is that picturesque tract of common land — Putney Heath and Wimbledon Common, so delightful to those who love to see nature in her wildest character. Putney Church is a fine old structure. Across the old wooden bridge is Fulham, with its church and palace, the residence of the Bishops of London. It is a plain building, but the grounds are very pretty, and contain some line American trees, planted by Bishop Compton.
