We are proud to serve Wallington, a town with Sutton – one of the top performing boroughs for education. Not far from Britain’s capital city, Wallington comes from the Anglo-Saxon, ‘Waletone’ which means ‘village of the Britons.’ Wallington has a rich history, and has monuments and memorials that demonstrate their traditional values – preserving the memory of lost ones.
Wallington makes an appearance in the Domesday book of 1086, during which time, the city was held by William the Conqueror. During these times, Wallington had two mill ponds and – although the buildings have been demolished – the pond remains which is known as the ‘Grange boating lake.’
In 1847, a new railway station was due to be opened in nearby Carshalton, however they did not want the station to be located actually in Carshalton. As a result, it was situated in Wallington. When the railway station was built, it kick-started a new look within Wallington. In the 1860s, a new housing estate was built, consisting of gothic revival villas.
Since 1902, there is an annual procession which runs through Wallington. At this procession, a ‘May Queen’ is announced, selected from a group of three-year-old girls who join as ‘fairies.’ A year later, they become, ‘attendants to the queen.’ They progress to become ‘crown bearers,’ ‘banner bearers’ and finally ‘princesses’ where they become eligible to be ‘May Queen’ at the age of 9 years old. This tradition still takes place today, and demonstrates Wallington’s values in holding on to tradition.
Until ‘World War One,’ Wallington was a centre for the production for lavender oil – an important part of the town’s agriculture within the early 19th and 20th centuries. After ‘World War One’ the importance diminished, but the community of Wallington saw fit to commemorate and hold lavender in its memory. A lavender plant sculpture was installed in 1999, and one of the lavender farmer’s names has been given to a local pub in the area to help hold the memory. In addition, the town has Christmas lights that have the lavender plant as one of their shapes, and the scout groups within Sutton have a lavender plant as their logo.
Wallington’s traditions are a deep part of their community, and this can also be shown by the memorial unveiled in 1922, for those who lost their lives during the first world war. In 1949, the memorial was altered to include the members of Wallington who lost their lives during the second world war.

When visiting Wallington, other forms of entertainment include the farmers market which takes place every second Saturday of the month either outside the town hall, or a car park in Shotfield. There are shops and cafes from some of the world’s biggest outlets such as Caffe Nero, Tesco Express, WH Smiths, Boots, Dorothy Perkins and Pizza Express.

For culture vultures, there is a public library located in the district of Shotfield, and from May 2014 a small independent theatre was opened at the Brook café.
