Notes / History The present 17th Century Grade 2 listed Canons House is on the site of a former Augustinian Priory. Situated within the grounds is an old carp pond, thought to date back to the Middle Ages, as well as a dovecote regarded as the oldest complete structure in Mitcham and to have been built by the Priory and Convent of St Mary Overly in the 16th century.

At the time of this photograph the Canons House had been substantially altered internally and externally and very few architectural features remained. The windows in the property have been much altered over the years and have been blocked off, enlarged and added.

Seen from the windows in one of the rooms within the property is a view overlooking some well established trees and the gardens within the estate.
