Carshalton Central’s Street Tree Planting Schedule 2013

Cllr. Hamish Pollock who is a tree enthusiast asked the council’s tree expert for a list of the newly planted street trees recently and here it is. Sorry that it is such a long list but it demonstrates the council’s commitment over recent decades to improving our all-important street scene in Carshalton Central ward and indeed through the borough of Sutton.

Public Rights of Way: Bridle Way Footpath, off Woodstock Road

One of Carshalton’s many hidden historic treasures is the Bridle Way Footpath.

The footpath starts at the green space off Woodstock Road and which runs between Woodstock Road, Park Avenue and Park Close/Blakehall Road running down the back of the houses in Grosvenor Avenue and Ashcombe Road. Here are a few pictures of its current state.
