Spring Park is an area in the London Borough of Croydon, located between Monks Orchard and West Wickham.[1] Settlement began in the area at the instigation of the MP John Temple Leader in the 1830s, who employed the agricultural innovator Hewitt Davis to turn what was barren heathland into productive farmland.[2] Large scale residential building began in the 1920s-1930s.[3]
