TQ2968 : Site redevelopment, Mitcham Common

Site redevelopment, Mitcham Common
Site redevelopment, Mitcham Common
A rectangular bite was taken out of the edge of Mitcham Common in 1782 to build a workhouse. This closed in 1838, and instead of reverting to common, the local landowner built a rubber factory on part of the site. In time all of the site was used for industry, up until recent times. Again Mammon prevailed, and instead of reverting to common, the site is here being redeveloped for flats.
