Morden Hall Park :: TQ2668

This tranquil National trust amenity is a former deer park is one of the few remaining estates that lined the River Wandle during its industrial heyday.

The river meanders through the park creating a haven for wildlife while the snuff mills, which generated the park's fortunes, still survive - with the western mill having been renovated into a learning centre.

A much-loved rural idyll, the park lies in a built-up area, and some of the surviving estate buildings are used as workshops by local craftspeople and artisans LinkExternal link

Wandle Trail

The Wandle Trail is a 12.5-mile (20 km) walking and cycling trail that follows the River Wandle from Croydon to Wandsworth in south-west London.

National Cycle Network route 20

National Cycle Network route 20 will, once completed, link Wandsworth in south London with Brighton. It will be 45 miles long. The sections between Wandsworth and Carshalton, and between Crawley and Brighton, are already completed.

The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
