Textile Bleaching and Printing in Mitcham and Merton 1590-1870

Studies in Merton History 2: by E N Montague

This detailed study traces the history of the four major areas of textile bleaching and printing along the banks of the River Wandle within the ancient parishes of Mitcham and Merton – Willow Lane, Ravensbury, Phipps Bridge and Merton Abbey.

This volume has long been out of print, though copies can be consulted at Merton Heritage & Local Studies Centre.

However, the author has updated the information relating to the three Mitcham sites and has included this in the relevant volumes of Mitcham Histories.
