Notes / History This is part of the historic perimiter wall surrounding Church House, Church Lane, Merton.

The house was built on the site of a Tudor mansion and between 1820 and 1845 the property was used as a workhouse, and later as a school.

Part of the house was demolished in 1911 and the remainder in 1923. The wall which enclosed the house still survives and dates from the 16th and 17th centuries.
