Seely Road

Road south of the river Graveney, hence in the Urban District of Mitcham.

The owner of the land was Sir Charles Seely, after whom the road is named. He leased the area to the Tooting Bec Golf Club. When developed for housing, the area became known as the Links Estate, links referring to golf links.
