Mr. Addington established varnish works factories in 1850s and build his residential villa, which later, in 1969 was used as a staff canteen for local paint workers of Hadfields (Merton) Ltd. The Villa was demolished in 1979, but Merton Park Department saved the Artful wrought iron gate, where initial ”A” – for Addington can be seen incorporated into the design in the top square of the gate in the metal works.
