This quiet suburb was pretty much a rural area that relied heavily on agriculture up until the late 19th century. Once the railway arrived so did new shops and houses, and in the 30s Morden saw the construction of several estates, hence the proliferation of mock Tudor 1930s semi-detached homes. There are numerous open spaces and the roads are tranquil and lined with trees, however for retail or entertainment most people head to nearby Wimbledon or Croydon via the tramline. The Northern Line also stops here and there are various overground stations, making it a particularly well connected part of south London.
