|Notes / History||This porched red-brick building, located at 11 -13 Merton High Street, was used as offices, a storeroom and dormitory for the young weaving apprentices. The other small 18th century house had two rooms including a bedroom. Morris rarely stayed there preferring to travel everyday from Hammersmith to Merton Abbey Station. The houses and most of the site were destroyed by enemy bombing action in 1940.
