The Worst Things in Putney, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Putney.

The Worst Things
  • Deluded denizens who think there in either living in Fulham or Richmond. You're in the borough of Wandsworth for goodness sake.
  • Far too near the centre of london. No sense of community At All. Too many yuppies. Very limited shops.
  • Too much traffic on High Street.
  • The Traffic, too many people driving over the bridge
  • It could be closer to my work I suppose. The traffic, of course. The fascist parking attendants.
  • The Bookies on the Upper Richmond and all those shops next to it that look like they're falling over.
  • The Rat and Parrott- yuck! That man in the wheelchair who harasses all the nannies on the High Street.
  • It's in London and full of yuppies
  • Traffic on the high street
  • No KFC, no Wimpy, stupid coffee-shops/bars with tables out next to the main road.
  • A certain JD Wetherspoon pub
  • It will be Fulham.
  • No CAB company for miles. Nothing major though...
  • Putney High School. Very evil school at top of Putney Hill. I should know, I go there. (see also "cringing cult of celebrity")
  • Putney Bridge Restaurant and the Pheonix - both far too trendy and Fuhlam/Chelsea-esque.
  • The traffic jams and the bus fumes.
  • Definitely the traffic. But that's the fault of Hammersmith & Fulham council who closed Hamm Bridge. Bastards.
