Teddington
Teddington
is a suburban area lying west south-west of London, England. Historically in Middlesex, it has been part of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames since 1965. Teddington
Teddington
is on the north bank of the Thames, just after the start of a long meander, between Hampton Wick
Hampton Wick
and Strawberry Hill, Twickenham. Mostly residential, it stretches from the Thames to Bushy Park
Bushy Park
with a long high street reaching down to pubs, restaurants, leisure premises, fields and fitness clubs by the riverside, having a pedestrian suspension bridge over the lowest non-tidal lock on the Thames, Teddington
Teddington
Lock. Teddington's centre is mid-rise urban development.

Economy[edit] Teddington
Teddington
is bisected by an almost continuous road of shops, offices and other facilities running from the river to Bushy Park. There are two clusters of offices on this route; on the edge of Bushy Park
Bushy Park
the NPL, NMO and LGC form a scientific centre. Around Teddington
Teddington
Station and the town centre are a number of offices in industries such as direct marketing and IT, which include Tearfund
Tearfund
and BMT Limited. Several riverside businesses and houses were redeveloped in the last quarter of the 20th century as blocks of riverside flats. As of 2016 the riverside site of the former Teddington Studios
Teddington Studios
is being developed to provide modern apartment blocks and other smaller houses.[2] The lowermost lock on the Thames, Teddington
Teddington
Lock, which is just within Ham's boundary, is accessible via the Teddington
Teddington
Lock Footbridges. In 2001 the Royal National Lifeboat Institution
Royal National Lifeboat Institution
opened the Teddington
Teddington
Lifeboat Station, one of four Thames lifeboat stations, below the lock on the Teddington
Teddington
side. The station became operational in January 2002 and is the only volunteer station on the river. History[edit] Etymology[edit] The name "Teddington" comes from the name of an Old English tribal leader, Tuda. The place was known in Saxon and Norman times as Todyngton and Tutington.[3] Teddington's beginnings[edit] There have been isolated findings of flint and bone tools from the Mesolithic
Mesolithic
and Neolithic
Neolithic
periods in Bushy Park
Bushy Park
and some unauthenticated evidence of Roman occupation.[4] However, the first permanent settlement in Teddington
Teddington
was probably in Saxon times. Teddington
Teddington
was not mentioned in Domesday Book
Domesday Book
as it was included under the Hampton entry. Teddington
Teddington
Manor was first owned by Benedictine monks
Benedictine monks
in Staines
Staines
and it is believed they built a chapel dedicated to St. Mary on the same site as today's St. Mary's Church. In 971, a charter gave the land in Teddington
Teddington
to the Abbey of Westminster. By the 14th century Teddington had a population of 100–200; most of the land was owned by the Abbot of Westminster
Westminster
and the remainder was rented by tenants who had to work the fields a certain number of days a year.[citation needed] The Hampton Court gardens were laid out in 1500 in preparation for the planned rebuilding of a 14th-century manor to form Hampton Court Palace in 1521 and were to serve as hunting grounds for Cardinal Wolsey and later Henry VIII
Henry VIII
and his family. In 1540 some common land of Teddington
Teddington
was enclosed to form Bushy Park
Bushy Park
and acted as more hunting grounds.

Bushy House
Bushy House
was built in 1663, and its notable residents included British Prime Minister Lord North who lived there for over twenty years.[5] A large minority of the parish lay in largely communal open fields, restricted in the Middle Ages to certain villagers. These were inclosed (privatised) in two phases, in 1800 and 1818.[6][7] Shortly afterwards, the future William IV of the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
lived there with his mistress Dorothy Jordan[8] before acceding to the throne, and later with his Queen Consort, Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen. The facilities were later converted into the National Physical Laboratory. Economic change[edit] In subsequent centuries, Teddington
Teddington
enjoyed a prosperous life due to the proximity of royalty, and by 1800 had grown significantly. But the "Little Ice Age" had made farming much less profitable and residents were forced to find other work. This change resulted in great economic change in the 19th century. The first major event was the construction of Teddington Lock
Teddington Lock
in 1811 with its weir across the river.[9] This was the first (and now the biggest) of five locks built at the time by the City of London Corporation. In 1889 Teddington Lock
Teddington Lock
Footbridge, consisting of a suspension bridge section and a girder bridge section, was completed, linking Teddington
Teddington
to Ham (then in Surrey, now in London). It was funded by local business and public subscription. After the railway was built in 1863, easy travel to Twickenham, Richmond, Kingston and London was possible and Teddington
Teddington
experienced a population boom, rising from 1,183 in 1861 to 6,599 in 1881 and 14,037 in 1901.[citation needed] Many roads and houses were built, continuing into the 20th century, forming the close-knit network of Victorian and Edwardian
Edwardian
streets present today. In 1867, a local board was established and an urban district council in 1895. In 1864 a group of Christians left the Anglican Church of St. Mary's (upset at its high church tendencies) and formed their own independent and Reformed, Protestant-style, congregation at Christ Church. Their original church building stood on what is now Church Road. The Victorians attempted to build a massive church, St. Alban's, based on the Notre Dame de Paris; however, funds ran out and only the nave of what was to be the "Cathedral of the Thames Valley" was completed.[10] In 1993 the temporary wall was replaced with a permanent one as part of a refurbishment that converted St Alban's Church into the Landmark Arts Centre, a venue for concerts and exhibitions. A new cemetery, Teddington
Teddington
Cemetery, opened at Shacklegate Lane in 1879.[11] Several schools were built in Teddington
Teddington
in the late 19th century in response to the 1870 Education Act, putting over 2,000 children in schools by 1899, transforming the previously illiterate village. The 20th century[edit] On 26 April 1913 a train was almost destroyed in Teddington
Teddington
after an arson attack by suffragettes.[12] Great change took place around the turn of the 20th century in Teddington. Many new establishments were springing up, including Sims opticians and Dowsett's newsagents, which still exist today. In 1902 the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the national measurement standards laboratory for the United Kingdom, and the largest applied physics organisation in the UK, started in Bushy House
Bushy House
(primarily working in industry and metrology and where the first accurate atomic clock was built) and the Teddington
Teddington
Carnegie Library
Carnegie Library
was built in 1906. Electricity
Electricity
was also now supplied to Teddington, allowing for more development. Until this point, the only hospital had been the very small cottage hospital, but it could not accommodate the growing population, especially during the First World War. Money was raised over the next decade to build Teddington
Teddington
Memorial Hospital[13] in 1929. By the beginning of the Second World War, by far the greatest source of employment in Teddington
Teddington
was in the NPL.[citation needed] Its main focus in the war was military research and its most famous invention, the "bouncing bomb", was developed. During the war General Dwight D. Eisenhower planned the D-Day landings

The "towpath murders" took place across the river in 1953. On 1 June, Barbara Songhurst was discovered floating in the River Thames, having been stabbed four times. Her friend Christine Reed, then missing, was found dead on 6 June. On 28 June, Alfred Whiteway was arrested for their murder and the sexual assault of three other women that same year. Whiteway was hanged at Wandsworth
Wandsworth
Prison on 22 November 1953. Whiteway and the girls were all from Teddington. The case was described as "one of Scotland Yard's most notable triumphs in a century".[14] Teddington
Teddington
Studios, a digital widescreen television studio complex and one of the former homes of Thames Television, opened in 1958. Most major rebuilding from bomb damage in World War II was completed by 1960. Chain stores began to open up, including Tesco

and Sweatshop in 1971. Society[edit] The Teddington
Teddington
Society, which was formed in 1973 by local residents, seeks to preserve the character of Teddington
Teddington
and to support local community projects.[15] Education[edit] Main article: List of schools in Richmond upon Thames The education authority for Teddington
Teddington
is Richmond upon Thames London Borough Council. Primary schools in Teddington
Teddington
include Collis Primary School (Fairfax Road), St Mary's & St Peter's Primary School (Church Road), Sacred Heart RC School (St Marks Road) and Stanley Juniors and Infants (Strathmore Road).[16] Secondary schools include Teddington School.[17] Leisure[edit] The Landmark Arts Centre, an independent charity, delivers a wide-ranging arts and education programme for the local and wider community. Its activities include arts classes, concerts and exhibitions.[18] Sport[edit]
