Mitcham One-Place Study

Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Mitcham, Surrey, has a long history.

The Surrey Iron Railway passed through it, and with the mills on the river Wandle, industries led to the growth of the village into a suburban town.

This study aims to fill in the detail of this growth, at the street level, and of the people who lived and worked there.

The main period of the study is mainly the mid 19th century, when Mitcham was still a village, through when it became an urban district, to obtaining a charter of incorporation in 1934, and up to being absorbed into the Greater London area in 1965.
