Carshalton is one of the most beautiful areas in Sutton, perfect for people who love the environment. The area is in the valley of the River Wandle; in fact one of the sources of the river starts at the local ponds in the centre of the village. This makes the area very green and means there are a number of great walks and public spaces to enjoy.
In addition Carshalton is home to Sutton Ecology Centre, a valuable resource that provides environmental education for people across the Borough. Visitors can learn about different wildlife and habitats, gardening, going organic, and composting. An array of events runs throughout the year, offering opportunities for adults and children. Locals can also volunteer to help maintain the site.
The Sutton Ecology Centre has a trail that visitors can follow if they want to get a full experience of the site. It will take them via heritage sites, through nature, and involves sensory games too. This can really help people to engage with nature.
Every year the area is also home to the Carshalton Environmental Fair. The event is fun for the whole family, featuring demonstrations, stalls selling local crafts, interactive activities, a farmers’ market, food, bars, and live music too. The Fair is a great way to celebrate the environment and support local sustainability initiatives. In 2017 the event is held on August 28th, Bank Holiday Monday.
Although the area celebrates the environment there are still great transport links for commuters to enjoy. From Carshalton Station travellers can reach Victoria in just 25 minutes. This makes the area popular for people who want to live in a peaceful, green area whilst travelling to and from work in the city centre.
