Mordon Hall mansion The Rose Garden Parkland

There is an unexpected oasis of calm amidst the densely built up suburbs of South West London. Morden Hall is a picturesque and historic former deer park with meadows, woodland, former water mills, cottages, workshops and a stable, in addition to a spectacular rose garden with over 2000 roses in the summer months. The Hall itself was originally built around 1750 and has been a family home, boarding school, military hospital and currently a restaurant.
Roses
The Hatfield family who made money from snuff milling created Morden Hall Park. Gilliat Hatfield was a keen huntsman and fisherman and many of the buildings on the estate reflect his interests. The two water mills were used for grinding snuff until 1922, and the remains of the original waterwheel that once turned the massive millstones to crush tobacco into a fine powder can still be seen. Gilliat Hatfield died in 1941 and left the core of the estate (125 acres ) to the National Trust.

A very pleasant walk can be taken around the park to view among other things: the White Bridge straddling the River Wandle, Morden Hall mansion, The Snuff Mill and cottages and the the fabulous Rose Garden. There are also stables, craft workshops, a National Trust gift shop and riverside cafe.

You can also follow the Wandle Trail to Deen City farm with farm animals and a wildlife garden.

Mordon Hall Park is in Mordon Hall road SM4 5JD and can be reached by tram to Phipps Bridge Station.
