FROM PALACE TO PRISON – A WALK AROUND FULHAM OLD TOWN

  • Eight Bells pub 89 Fulham High Street London SW6 3JS (map)

Fulham as well as a palace has a prison, some of the buildings still survive. We will look at the site of the wooden Fulham Bridge and the ferry crossing, where the first Mercedes cars in Britain were built, the temperance billiard hall now a pub, the Fulham war memorial garden where a plaque commemorates a Victoria Cross winner, the surviving kiln of Fulham Pottery, the road that gave its name to a lavatory system and much more.

A walk not to be missed by the Fulham and Hammersmith Historical Society. Led by Keith Whitehouse.

Meet and return to Eight Bells pub, one of Fulham's oldest
pubs that has stood here for over 400 years and perhaps a drink afterwards.
