Portion of wall on the west side of River Pickle between Merton High Street and Merantun Way, High Street, Wimbledon Village SW19 - Merton

Formerly part of the precinct wall to Merton Priory, consisting of medieval flint and rubblestone. Sections of the wall are in poor condition and have collapsed due to vegetation growth. The National Trust has progressed with significant clearance works and has developed a plan towards its conservation and long-term maintenance, with improved public access. This has been achieved in conjunction with Historic England, the Local Authority, Merton Local History Society and Merton Priory Trust. Vegetation management is being maintained by the Trust whilst they seek funding for long-term works.
