5,7 & 9 Malden Road

Malden Road icon

These beautifully preserved timber cottages are among the most desirable in Cheam. Just down the road is the better known and more imposing house, Whitehall, which was built at a similar time, in around 1500.

Local elm and oak was used in their construction. The floors would probably have been made of beaten earth or crushed chalk, covered with straw.

Did you know? Malden Road used to boast its own brewery. Breweries flourished in this area from the 1200s onwards, as the local water reputedly made excellent beer. The last brewery here closed in 1910.
