New England in Worcester Park
In the early 20th century, the Epsom Sewage Farm occupied a small site immediately south of Green Lane. By the 1960s what was now Worcester Park Sewage Works had expanded southwards to cover about half the area now occupied by The Hamptons and after that it further expanded to the east and west. After its closure in the 1990s it was redeveloped to create the Hamptons in a style reminiscent of New England. At the centre of The Hamptons lies a 'town hall', Maple Lodge, which was designed to be the hub for the whole community. This is seen here. Part of the development is a 31 acres new green space called Mayflower Park, which includes a grass amphitheatre for performances and an area of five wetlands forming a nature reserve.
