Bill Rudd Collection: Morden

Here is a sample of the many slides Bill took of historic buildings and parks in Morden. One of his major projects was a photographic survey of the monuments in St Lawrence churchyard in the leadup to widespread clearance to enable the building of the parish centre in 1983/84.

A number of big events have taken place in Morden Park, and Bill loved photographing these. They will be displayed in an Events and Celebrations page in due course.

He also took photographs in the roads of Morden, many of which are still to be scanned:

Bow Lane Camrose Close Cardinal Avenue
Central Road Chalgrove Avenue The Crown, Crown Lane and Crown Road
Dudley Drive Epsom Road Farm Road
Garth Road Grand Drive Green Lane
Kingsbridge Road Lawrence Weaver Close London Road
Love Lane Lower Morden Lane Morden Hall Road

The shops in Morden town centre are displayed separately.

Much of Morden is now included in the St Helier Estate.
