Beddington Park & The Grange
Sutton Council is carrying out a range of surveys about it's Parks and Open Spaces this summer to help us to complete a new Open Spaces Strategy.
Through this survey we would like to find out your views and experiences of visiting the Parks in Sutton. This will help us to shape the ongoing work that we will do in Sutton to protect, maintain and enhance our Parks and Open Spaces in the future.
The park is said to be one of the most rich, historical and archaeological sites in south west London with evidence of settlements dating back to the late Bronze Age. The discovery of a Roman Stone Coffin in 1930 lends weight to suspicions that a grand Roman villa and bath-house once stood to the north side of the park.
A 58 Hectare Park across Beddington, Hackbridge and Wallington, Beddington Park originated as a deer park in the 14th century for the noble Carew family, whose manor house still stands in the park today (now Carew Academy). The River Wandle runs through the park culminating in the lake in the The Grange Garde.
