Merton Abbey Mills

Met up with Debbie today and we went off to take a look around Merton Abbey Mills.  It was a bit of a quick look at there was not much open.   It is a long time since I have been there and I know it is a buzzing place at the weekends but today on a a bit of grey, wet day there were only a couple of places open.    I think I may have to come back one weekend and see the place in full swing. 

Instead we went off to Wimbledon Village for a stroll, stopped off for lunch and a catch-up.


  1. The board looks interesting - where is this place?

  2. Petra

    It is near Colliers Wood at the back of the Sainsbury's Savacentre. Not too far from South Wimbledon.

    It is an interesting place that has a William Morris and Liberty connection. Here is a link http://www.mertonabbeymills.org.uk/
