The Society, originally called the ‘Carshalton Historical Society’ and later called the ‘Beddington, Carshalton and Wallington Society’ was founded in 1920.
Since 1921 the Society has been active in the field of archaeological excavation and publication. It has carried out a number of excavations in Carshalton, Wallington and Beddington, and has assisted in the excavation of Beddington Roman villa. Members have also helped in historical and architectural research in the Carew Manor area, as well as Carshalton’s West Street, Roman and Iron Age site.
They are always happy to welcome new members from all areas — especially those from the London Borough of Sutton. Why not join up and discover more about the area, its history and archaeology, and make new friends in an interesting society.
