The former gate house to Esher Place now makes a pair of stunning properties, a real showcase of the quality of architecture and heritage still remaking today in Lower Green.
In the OS Middlesex map published in 1872 you can clearly see Lower Green and the prominence the local area commanded. The following is all visible and testament to the thriving nature of the community; Mill Cottages, Papermills road, Boat House, City Post, Wosley Grange, Wells, Old Paper Mills, The Grove, Pound Farm and the London South Western Railway.
The following is a list of local representatives who should be able to help, should you have any local concerns.

This map produced in 1923 shows the full extent of Lower Green, it can clearly be seen that More Lane was previously known as Lower Green Lane.
Development was sparse with Mill Lane, an un identified road (Farm Road), Lower Green Road and Douglas Road. Douglas Road was short and not yet connected to the Woodlands etc.
Esher Place, Waynefleet Tower and the surrounds were made up of mostly green space, this would have been a truly magnificent sight.
The Grove and the surrounding area now makes for Arran Way, the extension of Douglas Road and Cobb Green.
A famous and listed milestone erected in 1767 outside the Orleans Arms, now Café Rouge.
Edward McKnight Kauffer produced this striking purple and green painting for Transport for London in 1916, and it is preserved in the TFL archive. The painting was modified into print for the No 178 Surrey Heaths advertisement.
In this early map of the area, it appears possible that Mill Road may be visible in the far right.
In 1908 Burns and Co situated in the Royal Mills set ablaze. In this postcard you can see the beautiful structure, which was unfortunately never rebuilt.
