A great place to visit with the family to learn all about windmilling. The children can also have a go at making flour using the grindstone there!

Putney is close enough for everywhere I need to go and far away enough that its quiet!
Putney is so close to so many parks, commons and wilderness areas. Like being in the country even through you are still in central London
Putney is a very safe feeling community area with many active persons who participate in running, cycling, rowing, sailing, etc. The easy access to Richmond park, Barnes, and the river provide a country feel while being a short commute to the city center.
Tube access at Putney Bridge, overland train access at the top of the hill - great buses. The best thing is walking home over Putney Bridge on a warm summer's night and looking at the river - it seems to divide work from home life. Great pubs, fantastic shopping, easy to leave London for the weekend - need I go on??
Putney is a beautiful bustling town within a big city. An easy commute into the city via train to Waterloo or simply hop on the underground or bus in to Central London. However, there is no need to travel at the weekend because Putney provides everything you need on your doorstep. The High Street is home to a wide variety of shops, supermarkets, hairdressers, boutiques and a wide range of restaurants - I am still discovering new places to eat after 4 years of living here! Wonderful homely pubs and upcoming bars, live music and great food. And last but not least, the River Thames and local parks provide an excellent setting for a relaxing walk or spiriting run to escape the hustle and bustle...

Little Kickers (Football for Children)Putney Leisure Centre
We have four different football classes each tailored to a different age group. However, we have two core beliefs that we take into every session. Firstly, we believe in something we call "Play not Push". It means teaching football in a fun, pressure-free environment. We want to give children a positive introduction to sport as a whole, not just football, so they're more likely to stay healthy and active throughout their lives. Secondly, we believe football can be educational. Coached in the right way it can stimulate imagination and aid early development skills such as learning colours and numbers, following instructions and playing as a team. It's an approach that has bagged us numerous awards and helped us expand globally over the last 12 years. And like all our Kickers, we never stop learning. We're continually improving and updating our classes, based on feedback and input from child health specialists as well as our network of over 1,500 football coaches worldwide. Approved Football Training for 2 - 5 years of age. 2-3 ½ years: 14:15 - 15:00 2-3 ½ years: 15:15 - 16:00 3 ½ - 5 years: 16:15 - 17.00 Mega Kickers: 5-7 years - £96.00 / 12 Sessions New members will be charged a one off membership fee of £16.00.
