According to local legend of 1787, the English towns of Putney and Fulham had their churches built by two Giantesses. They used only one hammer between them and would throw the hammer to the other when needed. From the south of the river, the Giantess would shout “Put it nigh” to let her friend know when to pass the hammer. The Giantess on the other side of the river would shout “Heave it full home” when she required the hammer. These two phrases were shortened to ‘putnigh’ and ‘Fullhome’ which eventually became Putney and Fullhome. This legend may derive from the Welsh Giants Bel and Wade.
