150 Years Exhibition

Published: 05/10/2021 By Allan Fuller


150 years ago a small temporary Wesleyan Chapel and school house was built on the corner of Gwendolen Avenue and Upper Richmond Road, before most of the elegant residential streets which today characterize West Putney existed.

A decade later the present church was erected, designed to accommodate a larger number of worshippers than any other church of any denomination before (or since) in Putney.

Through the intervening years of late Victorian and Edwardian London, the two world wars, and the post war years leading into the new millennium, its gothic bell tower has stood steadfastly as a familiar landmark in the western approach to Putney, surviving a deadly nearby V1 rocket explosion in 1944.

A fascinating new exhibition in the church, bringing to life Victorian Putney, and the history of the people and places among which our church community has worshipped during the past 150 years will accompany a series of events designed to mark this historic milestone over the weekend of 16-17th October 2021.
