Wrythe Green

The Wrythe is an area inside the London Borough of Sutton. The area is often referred to as Wrythe Green. The Wrythe is also a ward of Sutton Council with a population at the 2011 Census of 10,163.[1]


The Wrythe area's history dates back to the Roman era. The Place-names of Surrey says that the name may come from Anglo-Saxon rið = 'streamlet' (a small branch of the River Wandle). The population of the town is 10,384 residents.[2]


The Wrythe, even though part of Carshalton, has its own commercial shopping area which has a number of different restaurants and shops, punctuated at either end with a Marks & Spencer Simply Food and the biggest branch of Nisa for thirty miles.[3] There are three primary schools in The Wrythe - Victor Seymour Infants School, Camden Junior School, Muschamp and Rushy Meadow Primary School - as well as Carshalton College.[2] aa
