What have Harringtons Pie and Mash shop in Selkirk Road, Furzedown Recreation Ground, the Victorian Post Box in Church Lane at the entrance to Hawthorn Crescent and Fircroft School got in common?
They have all been approved for addition to the local list of historic buildings and items drawn up by Wandsworth Council and approved at Committee this week. Tooting History Group Committee members spent many hours surveying, compiling and submitting buildings and other historic items of interest for consideration by Wandsworth. Although local listing doesn’t have the same statutory force as listing by Historic England, it will have to be taken into account when planning applications are considered.

These Tooting landmark buildings; Defoe Chapel in Tooting High Street and The Gables, Longley Road, have also been added to the local list.
