Introducing Carshalton

carshalton london mapCarshalton is a UK village in the London Borough of Sutton in south west London, near to the border of Surrey. The heart of Carshalton is situated around picturesque ponds – a source of the River Wandle. It is made up several smaller districts and villages such as Carshalton village and High Street, Carshalton Beeches and Carshalton On The Hill.

Carshalton is unique, with a long and rich history. In 1724 author Daniel Defoe described it as 'the most agreeable spot on all this side of London'. Mustard-maker Jeremiah Coleman was born at Carshalton Park in 1859. One of the founding governors of The Bank of England is buried at All Saints church in 1722. It's got the last remaining coaching inn between London and Carshalton, still operating as a hotel (and some say The Greyhound may even be haunted).
