Notes / History Shrub Cottage was on the north side of Church Path, built against the western wall of an old walled garden, now a playing field in the John Innes Conservation area.

John Innes is credited with the original development of Merton Park as an attractive Victorian suburb in the 19th Century. John Innes acquired a large amount of land in Merton, intending to develop housing with an easy rail link to the City. He never married and by 1871 was living at the Manor House on Watery Lane, Merton (now part of the Rutlish School).
