Mayor of London: Facilities Fund

Saturday 21 July 2012 saw the unveiling of a newly constructed ramp for Putney Town Rowing Club. The project will enable direct river access in front of the existing boathouse.

The river access, located approximately 125 metres down river, is not sufficiently wide enough to allow more than one boat access at any one time and comprises of a series of steps which become wet and slippery at low tide.

Putney Town Rowing Club (PTRC), founded in 1922, has committed to growing the size of the fleet to support the forecast membership growth. The Club has grown to such an extent that the boathouse is now full.

The project will create better access to the river, much closer to the clubhouse and would allow the Club to widen activities and maintain current activity. Users that will largely benefit from this change will be the younger and older age groups, those starting in the sport and those in the 40+ and the 60+, ultimately increasing all round participation.
