Notice: We are embarking on a small project to make simple, aesthetic changes to the stable yard to improve it for our visitors. You will notice that we start to close off areas as we work to get everything working and give it all a lick of paint. Please give us a ring if there was a specific part that you wanted to visit to check that its open.

A park at the heart of the community

Morden Hall Park is green oasis in the city, giving you a taste of a country estate with a glimpse of its agricultural and industrial history.

This tranquil former deer park is one of the few remaining estates that used to line the River Wandle during its industrial heyday.

The river meanders through the park creating a haven for wildlife. The snuff mills, which generated the park's income in the past, survive to this day. We've renovated the western mill, and it's now used as a learning centre.

A much-loved rural idyll, the park lies in a built-up area, and some of the surviving estate buildings are used as workshops by local craftspeople and artisans.  The renovated Stable Yard is the heart of the park with a café, second-hand bookshop and a living green centre with exhibitions.

A place to discover

When you step through the gates, you'd be forgiven for imagining yourself to be in the middle of the English countryside. Surrounded by meadows, trees and the gentle sounds of birdsong and running water, the park offers a rare sense of discovery and a chance to get away from it all.
