The area of Fulham is located on the northern bank of the River Thames and lies between the fashionable and affluent neighbourhoods of Chelsea and Putney in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham in London SW6. Fulham is a mere 6km distance from Charing Cross and as such it has always played an important part within the wider context of London’s history.
Fulham has always been a desirable area to live in and was the erstwhile home of the Bishop of London, who resided in his official residence at Fulham Palace. The Bishop’s former home was turned into a museum and part of the grounds are open to the general public, having been converted into beautiful botanical gardens.
Recent archaeological digs have revealed that Fulham was already regarded as a prime residential property market some 5,000 years ago when Neolithic Bright Young Things occupied the riverside. Even the Romans couldn’t fault its location and settled here during the 3rd and 4th century AD, although even a wealthy centurion would have baulked at today’s house prices. At an average of around £700,000 per home, SW6 is one of the nation’s most expensive addresses.
If you travelled up the Fulham Road in an 18th century carriage on your way to Hyde Park Corner, and beggars attacked your horses because you had taunted the poor lining the streets, your servants would not have been able to claim compensation, even though you were ultimately responsible for the injuries they suffered in the resulting crash.
An employer today would face a personal compensation claim, if he or she had caused a road traffic accident and you were injured as a result, while traveling with your employer in the same car. Speak to an accident solicitor in Fulham, if you suffered an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Provided that accident was down to somebody else’s negligence and happened in the last 3 years, you are entitled to make a personal injury claim.
