32 Church Road

It was locally listed in December 1992, by Merton Council, who note:

This is a two storey detached building, which has a high parapet which
conceals the roof. There have been public houses on this site since at least
the 18th century, and the existing building includes fragments from several
different periods, including a weather boarded building with a brick chimney at
the rear. The building on the frontage of the site is likely to be a nineteenth
century structure. The materials used include render at the front, and brown
brick at the rear, with the weather boarded building at the rear. The main
features of interest include the symmetrically positioned 16 pane timber sash
windows with stone architraves, on the first floor, with the blind window in
between which acts as a public house sign. The ground floor retains a typical
Victorian public house frontage, with four paired pilastered panels, which
separate the windows and doors. No alterations subsequent to the Victorian
public house frontage appear to be evident.

See The Bull for more details about the building when it was a pub.
