Did you know?
Mitcham was a relatively small area focused mainly on farming prior to the Industrial Revolution but afterwards, it quickly grew into a town. Its farming history, however, still remains. This is evident in the large common, Arthur’s Pond and Alfred Mizen School (now Garden Primary) which was named after a local nurseryman who was well known for his philanthropic approach to the local community. New Barnes Avenue was also named after the well-established farm that formerly stood on the site.
Potter & Moore aftershave, made with Mitcham lavender
In its farming heyday, Mitcham was well known for its impressive lavender fields. Peppermint and lavender oil was routinely distilled there as well and in 1749 two local gardeners (John Potter and William Moore) started a company that made and sold toiletries made from locally-grown herbs and flowers. In fact, you may well have noticed that Lavender still features on Merton Council’s coat of arms as well as in the name of Lavender Field, the local ward.
The industrialisation of Mitcham also saw snuff, copper, flour, iron and dye production and cloth printing was also a fairly large industry. William Morris, a well-known textile designer, opened a factory in Mitcham. Merton Abbey Mills were the home of Liberty silk-printing works and it’s still a craft village even today. However, over time, crafts died out and gave way to other manufacturing including paint, varnish, linoleum and firework production, a far cry from its farming heritage.
