Most of the roads around SW19 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SW19 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online.

A Little Bit About SW19
The SW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added. The postal district of SW19 covers Wimbledon, Colliers Wood, Merton Park, Merton Abbey, Southfields and part of Morden. The local authorities covering these areas are Wandsworth and Merton.
Wimbledon, from the old English “Wynn-man’s hill”, with the don related to modern English ‘down’. The name altered under the Norman influence due to the difficulty in pronunciation. Wimbledon village referred to as “Wimbedounyng” in a charter signed by King Edgar the Peaceful in 967 and is shown on J Cary’s 1786 map of the London area as “Wimbleton”. In more recent time Wimbledon is best known around the globe for Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
Colliers Wood takes its name from a wood that stood to the east of Colliers Wood High Street, approximately where Warren, Marlborough and Birdhurst Roads are now. Henry VI, the only king of England to be crowned outside of Westminster Abbey in the last 1,000 years, held his coronation ceremony at Merton Priory in 1437.
Close to Merton Priory is the market and heritage centre at Merton Abbey Mills, which is on the bank of the River Wandle. The Wandle was reputed to have more mills per mile than any other river in the world, 90 mills along its 11 mile length. Merton Abby Mill market takes place in the former textile mills that were once the home of the silk-printing works for famous Regent Street store Liberty’s. The mills ceased operation in 1970 and lay empty till 1989, when they were converted into a cultural visitor centre.
