Merton Hall, Kingston Road
Merton Hall, Kingston Road
There is no glut of architectural treasures in this neck of the woods, this building is locally listed by Merton Council, which notes its "very good" detailing and the lack of adverse alterations since being built in 1899 (by local philanthropist John Innes), and yet a local campaign failed to prevent a particularly adverse alteration - its impending demolition behind the facade.
The council is doing a "freehold swap" with a local church whose current site the council wants for a new secondary school. Innes gifted the building to the local community, and this provision is supposed to continue in some form after the church has moved in. The church in question has great faith in miraculous healing so local residents should at least be able to look forward to an upswing in their health.
