A Little Bit About SW14
The SW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added. The postal district of SW14 covers Mortlake and East Sheen. The local authority covering these areas is Richmond upon Thames.
Mortlake appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Mortelage. Mortelage is thought to mean a small stream containing young salmon, referring to a fishery in the area on a former tributary of the River Thames which is now gone. Mortlake is a historic area on the south bank of the River Thames and since 1845 the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race has had its finish point at Mortlake.
The roads to the south of Mortlake High Street are comprised predominantly of residential terraced Victorian streets while to the north the area is dominated by the Stag Brewery site. Mortlake High Street is the historic core and while the residential roads to the south have been subject to very limited change, land along the River has been subject to much change as industrial buildings have been replaced with modern flatted developments.
East Sheen, also known as ‘Sheen’ is situated in SW14 postcode and within the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. The main high street is the Upper Richmond Road which has many small boutique clothing shops and delicatessens. Central to the area is a small square, known as The Triangle, with a war memorial, and an old milestone.
There are a number of parks and open spaces in the area including Richmond Park, accessed via Sheen Gate; Palewell Common, which has a playground, playing fields, a polo field, tennis courts and a pitch and putt course; and East Sheen Common. The 52-acre site, a National Trust property, also has a woodland and pond and is managed to encourage wildlife.
