Merton Abbey Mills
Merton Abbey Mills is a former textile factory in the parish of Merton in London, England near the site of the medieval Merton Priory, now the home of a variety of businesses, mostly retailers.
Merton Abbey Mills was historically a former textile factory and part of the Liberty silk printing works and is located on the banks of the River Wandle. The Mills date back to the 18th and 19th Century, and its claim to fame is that William Morris set up his new workshops on the site in June 1881.
The site today is home to an Arts and Crafts village, which has a variety of businesses, mostly retailers, as well as the Colour House Theatre. The business community there is active and there is a growing number of businesses focusing on sustainability.
