Clapham, London SW4, is a southern district which is contained within the Borough of Lambeth. It shares Clapham Common with Wandsworth, and the district contains three wards: Clapham Town, Thornton and Clapham Common, although it also shares parts of other wards with Brixton and Stockwell. In common with other districts in London, Clapham has its origins in the Anglo-Saxon period, being named Cloppa Ham due to being a village on a hill. The land was originally granted by King Edgar to a foreign nobleman, and this land was held until the Norman invasion, when the Clapham family moved to the North of England. The land was afterwards granted to a Norman lord, where it remained a small village-like town until the Eighteenth Century.
At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the lands had been converted into country estates, and several large houses were built in the district. Samuel Pepys lived in a Clapham house between 1701 and 1703 and the explorer James Cook's widow also lived near Clapham Common. As London gradually expanded, the country around Clapham was gradually swallowed up, creating a suburb. As London approached, so the district became less popular with the wealthy, leading to many of the large houses being demolished and replaced with ordinary social houses or workers' homes.
Clapham is famous as the home of the Clapham Sect, where evangelicals such as William Wilberforce opposed the English slave trade, and finally lead to its abolition in the 19th century. This sect were mainly composed of upper class social campaigners who were based around Clapham Common. Along with William Wilberforce, there was Henry Thornton and Zachary, father of Thomas Macaulay, along with prominent MPs and other campaigners.
Although it had ceased to be popular with the upper classes, many of the middle-class came to move into Clapham due to its next-door-neighbours of Belgravia and Sloane Square. These areas were too expensive for the majority of the middle-class, but Clapham was nearby and was quickly colonised by these people. This lasted for two decades, until the end of the 1990s, when Clapham became more multi-cultural, and the district now has people from the West Indies, the European Union, the Americas and Australasia.
Having become home to such a wide mixture of people, it is no surprise that Clapham is a popular location for people seeking interesting restaurants and leisure facilities. Due to its proximity with Northcote road, Clapham is also still a centre for shopping tourism in South London.
