Few little facts about Wandsworth
Wandsworth is an inner suburb of London on the south bank of the River Thames. Wandsworth takes its name from the River Wandle, which enters the Thames at Wandsworth. Wandsworth appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Wandesorde and Wendelesorde. This means 'enclosure of a man named Waendel', whose name is also lent to the River Wandle. It was held partly by William, son of Ansculf and partly by St Wandrille's Abbey.
