Did you know?

Wandsworth is named after the River Wandle, which joins the Thames at Wandsworth. Wandsworth appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Wandesorde and Wendelesorde which means ‘enclosure of (a man named) Waendel’, whose name is also lent to the river.

Lord Nelson fished at the river before winning the battle of Trafalgar and Frederick Halford, the founder of modern fly-fishing was often seen fishing there in Victorian times.

The Brewery

Well known in the area and nestled between Wandsworth town centre and the river is the site of Young & Co’s Ram Brewery. According to the Wandsworth Wiki page, the factory produced beer here for 425 years from 1581 to 2006, which it’s thought makes the Ram Brewery the oldest and longest continuous brewery in the UK. As a lovely, nostalgic touch, horses were still used to deliver the beer to local pubs within a couple of miles radius.

Although Youngs stopped their operation, it is still used as a micro-brewery despite extensive redevelopment to the Wandsworth Town centre site. The Ram Brewery website also provides a ton of information about the heritage of the old brewery.

The website explains that Charles Allen Young and his partner Anthony Fothergill Bainbridge bought the Brewery in 1831. However only a year later, most of the brewhouse was destroyed in a savage fire that ripped through the place but undeterred, the partners quickly rebuilt it. A shiny new beam engine arrived a few years later in 1835 and this is thought to be the oldest working model that still exists on its original site in the world although the factory stopped using steam power in 1976.

In our opinion, the best thing about the Wandsworth brewery is that one of Young’s original employees, John Hatch still operates his micro-brewery on the original site, confirming its ongoing historic status as a working brewery.  He mentions that it was actually 1533 that brewing started as opposed to the date of 1581 mentioned on the Wiki page. Anyway, the video of John explaining his story is well worth a watch and you can see it here.
