House Clearance in Morden
Morden, something you didn’t know
Early Morden developed around twin nuclei: St Lawrence church (and later Morden Park House) in the south- west and Morden Hall (shown in the photograph above) in the north- east.
Morden had been under the control of Westminster Abbey throughout the Middle Ages but it gained a resident lord of the manor in 1553. Richard Garth built Morden Hall and his descendants lived here for three centuries. St Lawrence church was rebuilt in 1636, probably around the skeleton of a much older building. The Garths built Morden Park House for John Ewart around 1770. Gilliat Hatfeild, a snuff manufacturer and would- be country squire, bought Morden Hall in 1872 and protected the neighbourhood from early suburban development.
In 1905 Morden still had 632 acres of grassland, 255 acres of arable land and 33 acres of woods. When the Northern Line (as it is now) was extended here from Clapham Common in 1926, the 17 miles from here to East Finchley made this the world’s longest tunnel. A bus station opened the following year and extra services were soon laid on to try to divert passengers away from the already overloaded tube station. Tube fares were set low with the deliberate intention of stimulating a housing boom in Morden and the plan worked.
A whole new town grew up around the station, with shopping parades on either side of London Road. Semi- detached houses with sizeable gardens were the predominant property type, with mansion blocks on the main thoroughfares. In the late 1920s the London County Council commandeered 322 acres in the south- eastern corner of Morden for part of its St Helier estate.
Gilliat Hatfeild died in 1941 and left Morden Hall Park to the National Trust; the hall itself is now a restaurant and function venue. The council bought Morden Park in 1945, preserving 90 acres as open space and playing fields.
