Sightseeing in Roehampton, SW15
The suburban district of Roehampton is located within the London Borough of Wandsworth. It forms the western border of the borough - the area between Putney, Wimbledon Common and Barnes. The area is situated 6.3 miles of Charing Cross.
The district first became popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. Putney Bridge had an important role in this process of development, since its opening in 1729 allowed the building of some large estate. Some of those survive till this day: Parkstead House (1750), Roehampton House (1710-1712), Mount Glare (1772); all of them Grade I listed buildings.
Alton Estate, ranked among the largest council estates of the UK, is located between Roehampton Lane and the Richmond Park Gold Courses. It features a mix of high- and low-rise modernist buildings. Close by are some modern slab blocks: Winchfield, Charcot, Denmead, Benley and Dunbridge Houses, all of which are grade II listed buildings.
There are multiple educational institutions in the area, among which widely popular are: South Thames College, Kingston University and University of Roehampton. The area has long had the reputation for teacher-training, thanks to Digby Stuart College and Froebel College.
