History

Although by the 18th century Hither Green had become a picturesque neighbourhood swathed in farmland and country manors, originally it was founded on land that had not been inhabited since the Black Death of 1350.

The Scottish MP Archibald Corbett transformed most of Hither Green, building more than 3,000 houses alongside schools, churches and libraries. He also deliberately included no public houses!
