Event Details

Morden - A Railway Suburb
31/08/2019 - 31/08/2019
Baitul Futuh Mosque, Morden

Morden – A Railway Suburb – Saturday 31 August - 2.00pm – 16.30

Led by: John Goodier

In our second visit to LB Merton we will be visiting Morden which became a railway suburb with the Underground in 1926 and the Sutton Loop in 1929. With the formation of the GLC the administrative centre of the Borough moved to Crown House, a speculative office block in Morden and the Borough added a Council Chamber and Library which we will visit.  We will then explore the local retail, housing and infrastructure.  Our exploration will end with a visit to the Baitul Futuh Mosque, which opened in 2003. It is the largest mosque in Western Europe.  Currently they are building a new administrative centre to replace the previous building lost in a fire. Please note that in the Mosque people should be prepared to remove their shoes and it would be respectful for women to cover their hair.

Meet time/place: 2.00pm Morden Station Northern  Line

Finish time:  4.30pm at the Mosque with a short walk past some fine mansion flat blocks and shops from the 1930s to Morden Station
