| Events in Merton | 10 Places to Stay

Admiral Horatio Nelson called it "dear, dear Merton". Nelson, the most famous former resident of this area in south-west London, lived here in a wonderful estate with mistress Emma Hamilton for three years before his death in 1805. The grand mansion and grounds have since gone, making way for industrial units and housing, but Nelson is commemorated throughout the district in many of its place names. St Mary's church, which in part dates from Medieval times, has preserved Nelson's pew, and the Nelson Arms marks the spot where the Admiral's visitors would enter his estate, past the gate lodge. In the 1600s the farming village of Merton also began manufacturing and printing textiles. The abandoned buildings of Merton Abbey Mills - situated close to the site of a 12th Century priory - are now home to an arts and crafts market, where a historic wheelhouse serves as a pottery and the site's oldest building, the Colour House, stages children's theatre. Nearby, the foundations of Merton Priory Chapterhouse are safeguarded below Merantun Way. Families will also enjoy the various attractions of Deen City Farm and neighbouring Wimbledon and Kingston-upon-Thames, while walkers and cyclists may explore the 14-mile River Wandle trail.
