GRAVENEY WARD

Did you know:

The smallest ward in Merton, this takes its name from the River Graveney (a tributary of the Wandle), which traditionally marked the boundary between the parishes of Mitcham and Tooting. Land bordering the Graveney is known to have been used for farms and settlements in Roman times. During the Victorian era, young boys gathered to catch minnows from the deeper waters – much of the river now lies hidden in culverts.

HILLSIDE

Did you know:

In the days before motorised transport, Wimbledon Hill proved challenging for anyone wishing to deliver goods to Wimbledon Village. In 1908, funds raised by the "Dumb Friends League" allowed the purchase of Jack, a large shire or “trace-horse". Stationed at the base of the hill, he and his groom helped to pull heavy loads up the steep slope in return for a small fee.
