A Little Bit About Hammersmith
The name Hammersmith dates back to 1294, and the area has something of a rich history. Its more notable historical residents include William Morris, father of the Arts and Crafts movement and the composer Elgar.
In the early 1660s, Hammersmith’s first parish church, which later became St Paul’s, was built by Sir Nicholas Crispe who ran the brickworks in Hammersmith. It contained a monument to Crispe as well as a bronze bust of King Charles I by Hubert LeSueur. In 1696 Sir Samuel Morland was buried there. The church was completely rebuilt in 1883, but the monument and bust were transferred to the new church.
The Hammersmith Suspension Bridge, designed by William Tierney Clark, was built across the Thames in 1827, and rebuilt in 1893. In 1984–1985 the bridge received structural support, and between 1997 and 2000 the bridge underwent major strengthening work.
Situated in postcode W6, Hammersmith is one of London’s most sought after property hotspots. It has a buzzy, multicultural hub and west London’s main route the A4 is on the doorstep and yet it is easy to escape this bustle. Hammersmith also offers elegant period architecture, great parks, riverside walks, a decent night life and excellent food shops.
