Notes / History The original Swan, described by Tom Francis as an "unpretentious, workaday village inn," had stairs leading up to the front so that a cellar could be accomodated underneath the pub, as the ground water in Mitcham lurks only a few feet beneath the surface. This picture shows the rebuild, which dates back to around 1900, with an elevated forecourt, which eliminated the need for the steps; corinthian columns, and a brick front - this too has now been demolished.
