All Saints Churchyard, Wandsworth  
All Saints Church stands on an important historic site, marking the old medieval centre of Wandsworth Town, which grew up by a river crossing of the River Wandle near where it joined the Thames. From early times Wandsworth was an important manufacturing centre, and by the 19th century industries included drug grinding, snuff milling, silk printing, felt making and calico bleaching. In the 17th century and 18th century, French Protestants, called Huguenots, fleeing persecution had settled here, and the area became a centre of non-conformist communities. The medieval church of All Saints was largely rebuilt in 1779-80 by William Jupp, and later altered in 1841. It was restored in 1955 following damage in World War II. The churchyard is simply laid out with grass and some seats, with crazy paving path around the church and a number of trees.
