Leader's Gardens  
A small public park lying along Putney Embankment between the towpath to the Thames and the surrounding houses. The Putney riverside was used by boatmen and for boat building from at least the 17th century, and for rowing from 1830. Although there was a towpath by the late C18th, the Embankment as it exists today was laid out in 1890 as a recreational area by the Putney parish surveyor, J C Radford, who was also responsible for the slipway serving various rowing clubs, the bridge over the Beverley Brook and Leader's Gardens, which opened to the public in 1903.
