REPLACEMENT WINDOWS WANDSWORTH Acknowledge Wikipedia for the following iWandsworth Town is an exclusive town on the south bank of the River Thames in south-west London. It is at the centre of the London Borough of Wandsworth, made up of Balham, Battersea, Clapham Junction, Earlsfield, Nine Elms, Putney, Roehampton, Southfields, and Tooting. Wandsworth takes its name from the River Wandle, which enters the Thames at Wandsworth. Many people say they live in Wandsworth, but are referring to the borough rather than the town. Wandsworth town is a relatively small, roughly triangular-shaped stretch of land, running down to the Thames. Wandsworth appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Wandesorde and Wendelesorde. It was held partly by William, son of Ansculf and partly by St Wandrille's Abbey. Its domesday assets were: 12 hides. It had 5½ ploughs, 22 acres of meadow. It rendered £9.

The last twenty years has seen Wandsworth join the ranks of the most expensive and desirable London towns. In February 2007 the Evening Standard placed Wandsworth as a borough with the third most million-pound property sales in the capital, behind Kensington/Chelsea and Westminster. Many of these sales are due to Wandsworth's (The Town) rapid riverside development, catering for the Chelsea overspill. Since at least the early 16th century, Wandsworth has offered accommodation to consecutive waves of immigration; from Protestant Dutch metalworkers fleeing persecution in the 1590s, to recent Eastern European members of the European Union. An influx of French Huguenot refugees in the early 17th century is remembered in many local street names. There is a band of small and expensive terraced housing (known as The Tonsleys) behind Old York Road — the former centre of old Wandsworth — rising to an area of grander, terraced, semi-detached and detached housing along the roads bounded by West Side Wandsworth Common, Earlsfield Road and East Hill. In contrast, at the base of East Hill is a collection of high-rise council blocks. According to an article in The Guardian in 2004: Wandsworth has a greater proportion of people whose lifestyle, views and trends shape the zeitgeist more than anywhere else in the UK. Wandsworth, in other words, is groovier than everywhere else in Britain. According to the Evening Standard"Wandsworth is the hotspot" for those people in London earning over £100,000.nformation
Dalbeattie In Dumfries and Galloway Is Said To Be The Birthplace Of Granite Polishing. Granite Quarrying Craignair quarry is a notable town landmark Formerly granite quarrying was an important part of the Dalbeattie economy. The most prominent of which is the characteristic Craignair quarry which is clearly visible to the west of the town. Dalbeattie Granite works was established in 1820 and was situated in Craignair Street, following a direct route from Craignair quarry. The industry died down locally around 1883 due to cheaper imports from Denmark. Many of the workers immigrated to other parts of the world in order to find work, a number immigrated to the USA to work at a sister quarry in Westerly, Rhode Island. Dalbeattie is credited with developing the technique of polishing granite stone to form a shiny surface. This technique was exported throughout the world by the skilled workers of Dalbeattie as they travelled.
