Garden wall enclosing four sides of playing field, Church Lane, Merton Park SW19 - Merton

Garden wall dating from the C16 to C17, with later alterations. There are many areas of eroded brick and inappropriate past repair. Damaging vegetation has been removed and a comprehensive survey with specification for repair has been prepared. The Local Authority has previously carried out rebuilding and repairs to a section around the entrance gateway which had been dismantled for safety reasons, but further works are needed, including control of vegetation.
