Fulham
(/ˈfʊləm/) is an area of the London
London
Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham
Fulham
in west London, England, 3.7 miles (6.0 km) south-west of Charing Cross. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames, between Hammersmith
Hammersmith
and Kensington and Chelsea, facing Putney
Putney
and Barnes.[2][3] Fulham
Fulham
has a history of industry and enterprise dating back to the 15th century, with pottery, tapestry-weaving, paper-making and brewing in the 17th and 18th centuries in present-day Fulham
Fulham
High Street, and later involvement in the automotive industry, early aviation, food production, and laundries.[4] Lillie Bridge
Lillie Bridge
Depot, a railway engineering depot opened in 1872, is associated with the building and extension of the London

Fulham Palace
Fulham Palace
- the Manor of Fulham[edit]

Chertsey Breviary - St. Erkenwald

Sands End

Fulham, or in its earliest form "Fulanhamme", is thought to have signified the place either "place of fowls" or "of mud" (which probably had to do with the fact that the River Thames
River Thames
would flood it periodically), or alternatively, "land in the crook of a river bend belonging to an Anglo Saxon chief named Fulla". The manor of Fulham
Fulham
is said to have been given to Bishop Erkenwald
Erkenwald
about the year 691 for himself and his successors in the See of London. In effect, Fulham Palace, for nine centuries the summer residence of the Bishops of London, is the manor of Fulham.[14] In 879 Danish invaders, sailed up the Thames
Thames
and wintered at Fulham
Fulham
and Hammersmith. Raphael Holinshed relates that the Bishop of London
Bishop of London
was lodging in his manor place in 1141 when Geoffrey de Mandeville, riding out from the Tower of London, took him prisoner. During the Commonwealth the manor was temporarily out of the bishops' hands, having been sold to Colonel Edmund Harvey. In recent years there has been a great revival of interest in Fulham's earliest history, due almost entirely to the efforts of the Fulham Archaeological Rescue Group. This has carried out a number of interesting digs, particularly in the vicinity of Fulham
Fulham
Palace, which show that approximately 5,000 years ago Neolithic
Neolithic
people were living by the riverside and in other parts of the area. Excavations have also revealed Roman settlements during the third and fourth centuries AD. Fulham
Fulham
parish[edit] There is no record of the original erection of a Parish church
Parish church
in Fulham, but the first written record of a church dates from 1154 as a result of a tithe dispute. The first known parish priest of All Saints Church, Fulham
Fulham
was appointed in 1242. The medieval extant part of All Saints Church was demolished in 1881, during reconstruction by Sir Arthur Blomfield, in order to enlarge it, however, it did not date farther back than the 15th century.[15] Interestingly, there is a comparably old church on the opposite bank of the Thames, St Mary's Church, Putney, on the other side of the river crossing. In 1642 the Earl of Essex threw a bridge of boats across the river in order to march his army in pursuit of Charles I, who thereupon fell back on Oxford. This is thought to have been near the subsequent wooden Fulham
Fulham
Bridge, built in 1729 and replaced in 1886 with Putney Bridge. Margravine Road recalls the existence of Brandenburg House, a riverside mansion built by Sir Nicholas Crispe in the time of Charles I, and used as the headquarters of General Fairfax
General Fairfax
in 1647 during the civil wars. In 1792 it was occupied by Charles Alexander, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach and his wife, and in 1820 by Caroline, consort of George IV. His non-political 'wife' was Maria Fitzherbert
Maria Fitzherbert
who lived in East End House in Parson's Green. They are reputed to have had several children.[16]

During the 18th century Fulham
Fulham
had a reputation for debauchery, becoming a playground for the wealthy of London, where there was much gambling and prostitution and breweries.[citation needed] Until 1834, the neighbouring village of Hammersmith
Hammersmith
had been incorporated in the parish of Fulham.[17] However, due to population expansion, it was decided to create separate parishes for the purposes of administration. They did not come together again until 1965.[citation needed] 19th century transport and power plays[edit]

The 19th century roused Walham Green
Walham Green
village, and the surrounding hamlets that made up the parish of Fulham, from their rural slumber and market gardens with the advent first of power production and then more hesitant transport development.[18] This was accompanied by accelerating urbanisation, as in other centres in the county of Middlesex, which encouraged trade skills among the growing population. In 1824 the Imperial Gas Light and Coke Company, the first public utility company in the world, bought the Sandford estate in Sands End to produce gas for lighting - and in the case of the Hurlingham Club, for ballooning.[19] Its ornately decorated number 2 gasholder is Georgian, completed in 1830 and reputed to be the oldest gasholder in the World.[20] In connection with gas property portfolios, in 1843 the newly formed Westminster
Westminster
Cemetery Company had trouble persuading the Equitable gas people (a future Imperial take-over) to sell them a small portion of land to gain southern access, onto the Fulham
Fulham
Road, from their recently laid out Brompton Cemetery, over the parish border in Chelsea. The sale was finally achieved through the intervention of cemetery shareholder and Fulham
Fulham
resident, John Gunter.[21][22]

Meanwhile, another group of local landowners, led by Lord Kensington with Sir John Scott Lillie
Sir John Scott Lillie
and others had conceived, in 1822, the idea of exploiting the water course up-river from Chelsea Creek on their land by turning it into a two-mile canal. It was to have a basin, a lock and wharves, to be known as the Kensington Canal, and link the Grand Union Canal
Grand Union Canal
with the Thames. In reality, however, the project was over budget and delayed by contractor bankruptcies and only opened in 1828, when railways were already gaining traction.[23] The short-lived canal concept did however leave a legacy: the creation on Lillie's land of a brewery and residential development, 'Rosa' - and 'Hermitage Cottages', and several roads, notably, the Lillie Road connecting the canal bridge, (Lillie Bridge) at West Brompton
West Brompton
with North End Lane and the eventual creation of two railway lines, the West London
London
Line and the District line
District line
connecting South London
London
with the rest of the capital. This was done with the input of two noted consulting engineers, Robert Stephenson
Robert Stephenson
in 1840 and from 1860, Sir John Fowler.[23]

It meant that the area around Lillie Bridge
Lillie Bridge
was to make a lasting, if largely unsung, contribution for well over a century to the development and maintenance of public transport in London
London
and beyond. Next to the Lillie Bridge
Lillie Bridge
engineering Depot, the Midland Railway established its own coal and goods yard.[citation needed] In !907 the engineering HQ of the Piccadilly Line in Richmond Place (16-18 Empress Place) oversaw the westward expansion of the line into the suburbs. At the turn of the century, the London
London
Omnibus Co. in Seagrave Road oversaw the transition of horse-drawn to motor buses, which were eventually integrated into London
London
Transport and London Buses. This attracted a host of other automotive enterprises to move into the area.[citation needed] With the growth of 19th-century transport links into East Fulham
Fulham
and its sporting venues by 'Lillie Bridge', along with the immediately neighbouring 24-acre Earl's Court
Earl's Court
exhibition grounds, and the vast the Empress Hall (see entertainment section below). During the First World War it would become accommodation for Belgian refugees. Meanwhile, the historic hamlet of North End was massively redeveloped in the 1880s by Messrs Gibbs & Flew, who built 1,200 houses on the fields. They had trouble disposing of the properties, so for public relations purposes, they renamed the area 'West Kensington', to refer to the more prosperous neighbourhood over the parish boundary.[24] The last farm to function in Fulham
Fulham
was Crabtree Farm, which closed at the beginning of the 20th-century. A principal recorder of all these changes was a local man, Charles James Féret (1854-1921), who conducted research over a period of decades before publishing his three volume history of Fulham
Fulham
in 1900.[25][26]

Art and Craft[edit] Ceramics
Ceramics
and weaving in Fulham
Fulham
go back to at least the 17th century, most notably with the Fulham
Fulham
Pottery, followed by the establishment of tapestry and carpet production with a branch of the French 'Gobelins manufactory' and then the short-lived Parisot weaving school venture in the 1750s. William De Morgan, ceramicist and novelist, moved into Sands End
Sands End
with his painter wife, Evelyn De Morgan, where they lived and worked. Another artist couple, also members of the Arts and Crafts movement, lived at 'the Grange' in North End, Georgiana Burne-Jones and her husband, Edward Burne-Jones, both couples were friends of William Morris. Other artists who settled along the Lillie Road, were Francesco Bartolozzi, a florentine engraver and Benjamin Rawlinson Faulkner, a society portrait painter. Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, the French expressionist painter and friend of Ezra Pound, lived in Walham Green till his early death in 1915. Glass production was, until recently, represented by the stained glass studio of the purpose-built and Grade II listed Glass House in Lettice Street and latterly, by the Aaronson Noon Studio, with the 'Zest' Gallery in Rickett Street, that was obliged to shut down in 2012, after 20 years by the developers of 'Lillie Square' and Earl's Court. Both glass businesses have now moved out of London.[27][28][29] The Art Bronze Foundry, founded by Charles Gaskin in 1922 still operates in Michael Road, off the New King's Road, a short distance from Eel Brook Common. It has produced works by Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink, Barbara Hepworth
Barbara Hepworth
and Jacob Epstein

among others. Its work may be seen in public spaces all over the world.[30] 20th century[edit]

Fulham
Fulham
remained a predominantly working class area for the first half of the 20th century, with genteel pockets at North End, along the top of Lillie and New King's roads, especially around Parsons Green, Eel Brook Common, South Park and the area surrounding the Hurlingham Club. Essentially, the area had attracted waves of immigrants from the countryside to service industrialisation and the more privileged parts of the capital. With rapid demographic changes there was poverty, as had been noted by Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens
and Charles Booth and Fulham
Fulham
had its Poorhouses, and attracted several benefactors, including: the Samuel Lewis (financier) Housing Trust, the Peabody Trust
Peabody Trust
and Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation to provide low-cost housing.[31] The Metropolitan Asylums Board acquired in 1876 a 13-acre site at the bottom of Seagrave Road, to build a fever hospital, The Western Hospital, that later became an NHS centre of excellence for treating polio until its closure in 1979.[32] Bar one ward block remaining in private occupation, it was replaced by a gated flats development and a small public space, Brompton Park.[33] Aside from the centuries-old brewing industry, e.g. The Swan Brewery on the Thames,[34] the main activities were motor and early aviation- Rolls Royce, Shell-Mex, Rover, the London
London
Omnibus Co. - and rail engineering ( Lillie Bridge
Lillie Bridge
Depot), laundries - the Palace Laundry is still extant - and the building trades.[35] Later there was distilling, Sir Robert Burnett's White Satin Gin,[36] food processing, e.g. Telfer's Pies, Encafood and Spaghetti House
Spaghetti House
and Kodak's photographic processing. This encouraged the southern stretch of North End Road to become Fulham's unofficial 'High street', almost a mile from the actual Fulham
Fulham
High Street, with its own department store, F.H. Barbers, along with Woolworth's, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury's
Sainsbury's
outlets, all long gone. The second ever Tesco shop opened in the North End Road. The UK's reputedly oldest independent health food shop, opened in 1966 by the Aetherius Society, still trades in the Fulham
Fulham
Road. Allied to these developments, the post-war period saw the extensive demolition of Fulham's early 19th century architectural stock, replaced by some Brutalist architecture

that in 1962 replaced the declining Empress Hall. The LCC and local council continued with much needed council housing development between the Second World War

and up to the 1980s. Piece of aviation history[edit]

in 1909.[37] Later, during the First World War, Cannon's Brewery site at the corner of Lillie and North End Road

was used for aircraft manufacture.[38] The Darracq Motor Engineering Company of Townmead Road, became aircraft manufacturers in Fulham

for the Airco

William Crathern, the composer, was organist at St Mary's Church, West Kensington, when it was still known as North End. Edward Elgar, the composer, lived at 51 Avonmore Road, W14, between 1890–1891.[39] Eugène Goossens and his wife Annie Cook, a Carl Rosa Opera Company singer settled in Fulham

with their family. They were part of a musical dynasty of Belgian descent. Their eldest son was the conductor and composer Sir Eugene Aynsley Goossens

next was Léon Jean Goossens (1897-1988), a British oboist, their daughters were the harpists, Marie and Sidonie Goossens. The family lived at 70, Edith Road, off the North End Road. Elvis Costello

of mid-Victorian housing, designed by John Young (architect), close to Grade I and II listed structures and to a number of conservation areas in both boroughs. It also involves the closure of the historic Lillie Bridge
Lillie Bridge
Depot, opened in 1872 and the dispersal of its operations by TfL[41][42] Namesake[edit] The latest edition (2008) of the Chambers Dictionary defines a fulham as 'a die loaded at the corner to ensure that certain numbers are thrown (also full'am or full'an). Prob the place name 'Fulham' in London.' The OED
OED
distinguishes between a high fulham which was loaded so as to ensure a cast of 4, 5, or 6; and a low fulham, so as to ensure a cast of 1, 2, or 3). It also cites Arthur Conan Doyle's usage in 1889 in Micah Clarke
Micah Clarke
xxx. 316 "There is no loading of the dice, or throwing of fulhams."[citation needed] Politics[edit]

parliamentary constituency which was dissolved in 2010 to form the current seats. However, parts of Fulham continue to score highly on the Jarman Index, indicating poor health outcomes due to adverse socio-economic factors.[citation needed] Fulham
Fulham
has in the past been solid Labour territory. Michael Stewart, one time Foreign Secretary in the Wilson government, was its long-standing MP. It became a politically significant part of the country, having been the scene of two major parliamentary by-elections in the 20th century. In 1933, the Fulham
Fulham
East by-election became known as the "peace by-election". The 1986 by-election following the death of Conservative MP, Martin Stevens, resulted in a Labour win for Nick Raynsford on a 10% swing.[citation needed] With "gentrification", Fulham
Fulham
voters have been leaning towards the Conservatives since the 1980s as the area underwent huge demographic change: the tightly-packed terraces which had housed working-class families employed in trade, engineering and the industry that dominated Fulham's riverside being gradually replaced with young professionals.[citation needed] In the 2005 General Election, Greg Hands
Greg Hands
won the Hammersmith

In the 2015 General Election he was returned with an increased share of the vote.[citation needed] Hammersmith

At the 2014 local elections, Labour won 11 seats from the Conservatives, giving them 26 councillors and control of the council (said to have been the then Prime Minister David Cameron's "favourite"[43]) for the first time since 2006.

Exhibition Centre in the neighbouring, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.[48] The first closed in 1959, replaced by an office block, the Empress State Building. The second, opened by Princess Diana, lasted just over 20 years until 2014. Along with the architecturally pleasing Mid-Victorian Empress Place, formerly access to the exhibition centre, it is destined for high rise re-development, but with usage as yet to be confirmed.[49][50] No trace is left today of either of Fulham's two theatres, both opened in 1897. The 'Grand Theatre' was on the approach to Putney
Putney
Bridge and was designed by the prolific WGR Sprague, author of venues such as Wyndham's Theatre
Wyndham's Theatre
and the Aldwych Theatre

in London's West End. It gave way to office blocks in the late 1950s. The 'Granville Theatre', founded by Dan Leno, to the design of Frank Matcham, once graced a triangle of land at Walham Green.[51] After the Music hall

era had passed, It served as a film and television studio, but was finally demolished in 1971. It too has been replaced by an office block in Fulham
Fulham
Broadway.[52] If traditional or heritage venues have been swept away - apparently during conservative administrations in the main - the performing arts continue in Fulham, like the notable Fulham Symphony Orchestra and the successful Fulham
Fulham
Opera.[53] St John's Parish Church, at the top of North End Road, stages choral and instrumental concerts as do other churches in the area.[54] There is a cinema complex as part of the Fulham
Fulham
Broadway Centre. Fulham
Fulham
Town Hall, built in 1888 in the classical renaissance, is now used as a popular venue for concerts and dances, especially its Grand Hall. Behind Fulham
Fulham
Broadway, the heart of the original village of Walham Green
Walham Green
has undergone pedestrianization, including the spot once occupied by the village green and its pond next to St. John's Parish Church and bordered by a number of cafés, bars, and a dance studio in the old Fulham
Fulham
Public Baths. The largest supermarket in Fulham, is located on the site of a cinema later converted to the iconic "Dicky Dirts" jean store with its sloping shop-floor, at the top of North End Road's Street market. It started a new trend in how retail was done.[55] Gin, breweries and pubs[edit]

Lillie Langtry pub (formerly, 'The Lillie Arms'), 1835

The most illustrious brewery in Fulham
Fulham
was the Swan Brewery, Walham Green, dating back to the 17th-century. Among its patrons were kings and other royalty.[56] It was followed by the 'North End Brewery' in 1832, Cannons again in North End in 1867 and finally on account of temperance, the alcohol-free phenomenon that was Kops Brewery
Kops Brewery
founded in 1890 at a site in Sands End.[citation needed] Gin distilling came to the remnants of the North End Brewery in Seagrave Road after a brief period of service as a timber works in the 1870s and lasted for almost a century. The premises were taken over by distillers, Vickers who at the outbreak of the First World War
First World War
sold out to Burnett's, producers of White Satin Gin, until a 1970s take-over by a Kentucky liquor business. None of the breweries remain.[citation needed] With its long history of brewing, Fulham
Fulham
still has a number of pubs and gastropubs.[57] The oldest tavern is the 'Lillie Langtry' in Lillie Road, originally the 'Lillie Arms' named after its first freeholder, Sir John Scott Lillie, who built it in 1835 as part of the 'North End Brewery' complex, run from 1832-3 by a Miss Goslin.[58] It was intended originally to service the Kensington Canal

parish's rural past meant that its grand houses and not so grand vernacular and industrial buildings were either clustered in the village of Walham Green, along the Thames

or scattered among the fields of the hamlet of North End. Many historic structures fell prey to industrialisation, war-time bombing or a rush to demolition and redevelopment. Gone are Burne-Jones's 'Grange' in W14 and Foote's 'Hermitage' villa and park as is Lovibond's Cannon Brewery in SW6.[61] However, the ancient estate of Fulham
