Notes / History During the nineteenth century the reliance on horse transport meant that many local poeple were employed in associated trades.

There were a number of smithies in the Mitcham area, shoeing horses, fashioning metal tools, making and repairing cartwheels.

The timbered building shown here was situated on
London Road, Upper Mitcham.
