The SW15 postcode covers the area of Putney. It neighbours on Barnes in the North, East Sheen in the West, Wimbledon in the South and Wandsworth in the East. There are many green spaces in Putney making this area suitable for many young couples and families. Putney Heath, Putney Heath Cricket Ground, Putney Lower Common, Wandsworth Park and Roehampton Playing Fields provide some fantastic green spaces for the locals to enjoy. It also neighbours on some of the largest and most beautiful green spaces in South London. Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park both are partly located in SW15 and are pretty much within walking distance from any part of the postcode.
It is relatively well connected with the East Putney Underground Station providing access to the District Line. And Putney and Barnes Rail Stations allowing the locals to take South Western Railway service outside of London.
Interestingly enough most of the local homes have an attached garden to the property. This is a good piece of information for any company offering services that relate to the household or the garden since the percentage of deliveries that will be made to homes that might have an interest in such services will be higher than in most places in London.
Putney is surrounded by very affluent South London Postcodes like Richmond or Wimbledon and as such it is interesting that SW15 has one of the younger demographics anywhere in London. Some 75% of households are either single occupancy or couples with children and the influx of young professionals working in the city and commuting on the district line or one of the local bus lines has been blamed for some loss in character this historically beautiful area has seen. Many of the local smaller shops and producers here have been replaced by supermarkets and larger chains.
Putney however has still kept it's characteristic feel. Since the construction of Putney Bridge almost no large industrial ships come through this area on the Themes and this has allowed for the local rowing community to use the UK's largest river almost uninterrupted. Cricket, Golf and Tennis players are all very well catered to in SW15 as well with the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton Golf Club and Putney Heath Cricket Ground all being located here.
