Rather interesting Fulham facts
Did you know that the first British-grown examples of Tamarisk, Acacia, Mahogany and Maple trees were all grown in the gardens of Fulham Palace , summer residence of the Bishops of London? They were grown by Bishop Henry Compton (who held the post from 1675 to 1713), a noted botanist. One of his predecessors grew grapes there, some of which Elizabeth I ate.
Did you know that Britains 1st speed bumps were installed on Linver Rd in Fulham in 1984
