Tue 10 Sep "The Hidden Area of Teddington"


This fully illustrated talk considers the development of Fulwell before the Second World War to show that there is more to Fulwell than Fulwell Bus Garage. In 1870 the Fulwell area was covered in fields, orchards, gravel pits and open spaces but by 1939 it was covered in houses, shops and other buildings.

The themes explored in the talk include the spread of housing across the area (including types of housing and local builders); the emergence of community facilities such as religious establishments, schools and shops; the people and families who lived in Fulwell and the communities they developed.
