What was then called “Carshalton” railway station was opened in 1847 in the open fields to the south of Wallington because the owner of Carshalton Park objected to it being built near to Carshalton village. This acted as a spur to the development of the area and in the 1860s Nathaniel Bridges created a prestigious housing estate of gothic revival villas (architect E. L. Brock) and a new church (Holy Trinity). The area around Holy Trinity Church is known as Wallington Old Town In particular Clifton road, Belmont road and Park road exhibit some fantastic Victorian and Edwardian villas. This southward development continued towards Woodcote and by the time of the first world war the section of Woodcote Road to the south of the station had become the new high street.
