Eveline Road

Road that connects Mortimer Road at its western end to its eastern end to London Road, where Streatham Road and Locks Lane meet.

Originally called Prospect Road according to a footnote in a 1957 article on a human skull being found in a coal shed.

The houses are numbered odd on the south side, ascending from the eastern, London Road end, and even on the north side.

There is an allotment between the north side and Lavender Avenue, which is accessible from London Road. It is one of the 18 such allotment sites run by Merton Council.

On the south side, between numbers 47 and 49, is Plummer Lane, which leads to Bond Road.
