Douglas House

The block of shops and flats called Abinger House, north of Bucks Head Parade, was built in the 1930s on the site of Douglas House. According to Eric Montague in Mitcham Histories 14, page 11, this was a ‘detached brick built house tenanted until 1888 by the Reverend Robert Richman, pastor of the Zion Congregational Chapel in Western Road.
