History

History

The lane was laid out by the early C18th as a formal tree-lined drive for a house built on the site of the former hunting lodge and later became the access to a number of grand houses built here including Granard House, Putney Park House and Dover House. The latter's early C18th entrance lodge remains, now known as Regency Lodge. To the south of the lane at the junction of Putney Park Lane and Putney Heath is South Lodge.
