Our Edwardian Gardens
Coronation Gardens commemorates the coronation of King Edward VII in August 1902. A local paper called it “Wandsworth’s new lungs”.
Sir William Lancaster (1841–1929) was an English businessman, philanthropist and politician, the second Mayor of Wandsworth (1901–02) and the co-founder of Putney School of Art and Design.
Mayor William Lancaster gave the land (Coronation Gardens) to be a public park and his sisters donated the granite drinking fountain.
The drinking fountain is described as rough hewn granite with Art Nouveau-style bowl and ornamental railings to one side.
