A district within the London borough of Merton, Mitcham, London CR4, is near to the boroughs of Wandsworth and Croyden. It has become very highly developed for residence, particularly being a centre for social housing schemes both before and after the second world war. People often visit the area in order to go to Mitcham Cricket Club, which has claim to be the oldest club in the world, and it also claims to be the oldest cricketing ground which is still in use today, although this has not been proven. There are a number of industrial areas, which are still functioning today, making the Mitcham district one of the biggest manufacturing sites in London.
Mitcham means 'large settlement' in Old English, and there is evidence that it has been colonized since the Celtic period. The Romans had forts and a population living in the area, and there are both Roman and Saxon graves in the district. The River Wandle is a popular site for these burials, which are now in the British Museum and Mitcham is also associated with the Battle of Merton, where Ethelred of Wessex was killed or seriously injured. Despite this continuous settlement, like most of the area not directly under the influence of the City of London Mitcham remained a rural farming community until the eighteenth century.
Mitcham was a popular location for nobles looking for easy access to the Monarch in London, and during the reign of Elizabeth I her friends and servants often lived in the district. Both Walter Raleigh and John Donne had homes in the area, which was prized for its 'good' air, mostly caused by the large amount of Lavender being grown in the area. During times of plague, when people believed that bad air was spreading the disease, people came to live in Mitcham. During industrialisation Mitcham became a town, and local farmers gave money to build charitable works.
Although Mitcham grew again during the industrial era, it is true that the district was never well-served by the railway system, and it has rural links to lavender and peppermint growing until the nineteenth century. Its association with lavender continues to this day, in its Coat of Arms and the naming of local council wards such as Lavender Field. Despite being regularly bombed during the second world war, there are still some interesting buildings which tourists might like to visit, such as the Vestry Hall, home to Wandle Industrial Museum, and Elm lodge, which was built during the Regency period and is still standing.
