Colliers Wood in the London Borough of Merton has a long history as the home of all manner of industrial and commercial activity. In its heyday the River Wandle had over 100 mills lining its banks. The waterway was attractive because of the fast flow and the energy it could provide. In Colliers Wood it resulted in the creation of an art and textiles hub. Products such as carpets, textiles and even stained glass were made in the area.
Although these former industries are no longer producing products commercial activity remains high in the area. This is focused primarily on retailing now though. The area is home to a bustling high street and there are two out-of-town style shopping centres in the region. The retail opportunities are very attractive to residents and visitors alike.
The great thing about Colliers Wood though is it is a largely residential area. There are plenty of quiet streets of Victorian and Edwardian homes to choose from. The properties are generally good sizes and prove attractive to couples and families.
The local Tube station gives residents access to the City and West End. It is served by the Northern Line and transfers can be made to connect with other lines at several points to increase connectivity even further. The station is situated in Zone 3, offering good value for travellers who need to use it regularly.
