From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Putney Vale is a small community at the foot of Roehampton Vale, just off the A3. It is part of the Roehampton Ward of the London Borough of Wandsworth.

The area is bordered by:

Geographically, Putney Vale is effectively surrounded by Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common, with the A3 separating the two.

The primary local "landmarks" are non-denominational Putney Vale Cemetery & Crematorium (where the former Prime Minister of the Russian Provisional Government Alexander Kerensky is buried), and an Asda supermarket.

There is a large residential estate, called Putney Vale Estate, tucked away behind the supermarket and cemetery. Built in the mid-1950's, the housing is comprised mainly of ex-local authority masionettes and some semi-detached housing. Today, most of the dwellings are in private hands, but some are still with the local authority. Also on the Estate is a private school, Hall School Wimbledon.

The Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields are popular with Saturday/Sunday league football teams, and the NEC Harlequins who train there.
