The Grove
The Grove Park, or The Grove is a public park in Carshalton. It is situated close to Carshalton Village in the area approximately bounded by the High Street, North Street and Mill Lane. The southwest corner of the park abuts one of Carshalton's ponds (Lower Pond) from where water flows through the park as the river Wandle.
The park land was in mediaeval times part of the manor of Stone Court. The manor house was situated at the corner of North Street and Mill Lane. In the early 19th century a new house called The Grove was built on the other side of the river on higher ground and is the large house seen today. The Grove, including the ornamental gardens, was bought by Carshalton Urban District Council in 1924.
River Wandle
A short river (9 miles) flowing entirely within southern London. It rises at Waddon Pond (Croydon) and flows north to meet the River Thames at Wandsworth.
