The area is bordered by:
The primary local "landmarks" are non-denominational Putney Vale Cemetery & Crematorium (where the former Prime Minister of the Russian Provisional Government Alexander Kerensky is buried), and an ASDA supermarket.
There is a large residential estate, called Putney Vale Estate, tucked away behind the supermarket and cemetery. Built in the mid-1950's, the housing is comprised mainly of ex-local authority masionettes and some semi-detached housing. Today, most of the dwellings are in private hands, but some are still with the local authority. Also on the Estate is a private school, Hall School Wimbledon.
The Richard Evans Memorial Playing Fields are popular with Saturday/Sunday league football teams, and the NEC Harlequins who train there.
