TQ2267 : West Barnes: West Barnes Lane and Motspur Park

near to New Malden, Kingston Upon Thames, Great Britain

West Barnes: West Barnes Lane and Motspur Park
West Barnes: West Barnes Lane and Motspur Park
The grubby white post against the bridge parapet is a boundary marker. It shows the boundary between the former Boroughs of Malden and Coombe to the left and Merton and Morden to the right. During the reorganization of local government in the 1960s, the former became part of the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames, and the latter became part of the London Borough of Merton. The current boundary between these Boroughs still follows the original line through the marker.

The sign on the post on the left shows that you are entering the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. The road changes its name from Motspur Park to West Barnes Lane either side of the boundary post. The bridge carries the road over Beverley Brook.
