A Little Bit About Clapham
According to the Domesday book, Clapham began its existence as a Saxon village called Clopeham. Those records commissioned by William the Conqueror aimed at producing information about the current assets in terms of land and livestock of his people for the purpose of determining who is liable to pay what amount of taxes.
After The Great Fire of 1666, Clapham began to grow as the tragedy forced people to evacuate outside of the city into the much safer and untouched by the fire area in and around Clapham.
Many rail routes from London’s two busiest termini, Waterloo and Victoria, funnel through the station making it one of the busiest in Europe by number of trains using it, more than one hundred an hour outside peak periods. “Britain’s busiest railway station” isn’t actually part of Clapham, its Battersea. There had been a Battersea station on the site for many years, but in 1863 a junction was added to cope with the growing number of lines and it was named after the perceived more popular village of Clapham a mile away.
The first football match ever played under Football Association rule took place on January 9, 1863, at Battersea Park.
Today Clapham High Street is the most vibrant road in SW4 and is the beating heart of Clapham. It is home to a number of shops, bars, clubs, restaurants and has undergone massive gentrification in the last 15 years.
Education in SW11 and SW4 includes the prestigious Honeywell and Belleville Primary School. Secondary schools include Northcote Lodge School, Battersea Technology College, Battersea Technology College, and Thames Christian College.
