  1. About Colliers Wood

    Colliers Wood is an area in south London, in the London Borough of Merton. Colliers Wood station is served by the London Underground's Northern Line. Colliers Wood takes its name from a wood that stood to the east of Colliers Wood Road, approximately where Warren, Marlborough and Birdhurst Roads are now. Contemporary Ordnance Survey maps show that this wood remained at least until the 1870s but had been cleared for development by the mid-1890s. Colliers Wood shares its postcode district with Wimbledon, with postcode lookups returning this suburb name and some organisations insisting on its use.
