The Upper or Fair Green

Although no buildings survive predating the close of the 18th century, the road pattern suggests that from the earliest times this must have been a primary focus of settlement in what became the parish and later the Borough of Mitcham. If we cannot describe the Upper Green as the actual village centre, it was clearly the commercial heart of the community for a very long period. As such, it provides a fascinating study in local history, telling us much of the evolution of the township.

The Upper Green was the site of Mitcham Fair until 1923.
