Welcome To Historic Merton Abbey, SW19
The area of Merton Abbey occupies part of southwest London. Merton Abbey is part of the London Borough of Merton and lies between Colliers Wood and South Wimbledon. The area borders Wandle River (west), Deen City Farm (south), Christchurch Road (east) and Merton High Street (north).
The name of the area is taken from Merton Priory that once occupied the northern part of the district. The priory was situated at the crossing point of the River Wandle and Roman Road Stane Street. It was founded in 1114, and remained a notable learning centre until it was demolished in 1538 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. What remains of the priory are sections that have been preserved within the gardens of the area, most notably Liberty Avenue.
The area developed as a residential suburb in the first half of the 20th century. The 1980s were the period of expansion, with the development of Brangwyn Crescent and nearby cul-de-sacs. The Sainsbury Savacentre replaced Merton Board Mills. At that time the railway line and station were removed as well to give way to Merantum Way, Merton relief road.
Merton Abbey Mills is a notable area of Merton Abbey. It is the former site of a textile factory Liberty Print Works. Presently, the area includes a number of retail shops and a crafts market. In addition, there is a summer theatre site and the Abbeyfest music festival that are associated with Merton Abbey Mills.
