Barnes is an affluent, riverside London suburb in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and located in postal district SW13. It is located around 5.8 miles (9.3 km) west south-west of Charing Cross in a loop of the River Thames, with Hammersmith Bridge at the north end. With its relatively secluded location (the river acts as a barrier to much through traffic) and elegant houses, Barnes is often seen as a quieter place to live than the alternatives of Fulham, Kensington or Chelsea. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Barnes area.
Historically a part of Surrey, Barnes appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Berne”. It was held by the Canons of St Paul of London. Its Domesday Assets were: 8 hides, paying tax with Mortlake; 5 ploughs, 20 acres of meadow. It rendered (in total): £7.
Some of the oldest housing in London can be found on The Terrace, a road lined with Georgian mansions which runs along the west bend of the river. The Terrace also has an original red brick police station built in 1891. This police station was recently re-modelled as apartments. Barnes also has a very attractive village Church of St Mary, which was built in the late 16th century.
Castelnau in North Barnes, on the banks the river and Hammersmith Bridge, has an attractively designed small church, Holy Trinity. The area beween Castelnau and Lonsdale Road contains a 1930s council estate (including roads such as Nowell Road, Stillingfleet Road and Washington Road), mostly consisting of “Boot Houses”, these were houses constructed by Henry Boot company. These houses no longer meet building regulations and need to have their external walls reconstructed. This means that new buyers cannot get a mortgage on un-reconstructed houses and so residents of this area have usually lived in their houses for a long time (in some cases it being passed down).
Barnes has a unique place in the history of football. Firstly, Headmaster of St Paul’s School, Richard Mulcaster is credited with taking mob football and turning it into an organised, refereed team sport that was beneficial for schoolboys. St Paul’s School is currently sited on Lonsdale Road, although in Mulcaster’s time it was located at St Paul’s Cathedral in the City of London. Read more…
