Cheam, Sutton's Hidden Gem
Situated within Greater London just inside the border with Surrey, Cheam is a suburb in the London borough of Sutton. The place name Cheam is thought to mean 'village by the tree stumps' and to this day is seen as a village as much as a suburb. It's a place which has a long history, dating back to Saxon times. It's a reflection of its rich history and architectural heritage because it has a number of listed buildings and parts of it are known as a conservation area. Cheam is split into three distinctive areas, North Cheam, South Cheam and Cheam Village. Major roads include Station Way, The Broadway, High Street and Ewell Road. They meet in the heart of Cheam Village. Cheam has a lively high street with many well-known stores as well as independent shops and cafes. There are many spacious homes in the area with large gardens, particularly in South Cheam. A major green space is Nonsuch Park which was once home to Nonsuch Palace built by Henry VIII in the sixteenth century. Today, the park is home to Nonsuch Park House which was built in the mid-eighteenth century. Areas around Cheam include Morden SM4 to the north-east, Worcester Park KT4 to the north-west, Ewell KT17, KT19 to the west, Sutton SM1, SM2 & SM3 to the east with Belmont SM2 and Banstead SM7 to the south. Cheam railway station has trains to Victoria and London Bridge.
