Croydon, England City Info

The town of Croydon is situated at the head of the River Wandle, just to the north of a significant gap in the North Downs. Its name is of Saxon origin, and is thought to mean either 'crooked valley' or 'saffron valley'. It lies 10 miles south of London, and the earliest settlement may have been a Roman staging post on the London-Portslade road, although conclusive evidence has not yet been found. In the fifth to sixth centuries, it was the site of an important pagan Saxon cemetery. By the later Saxon period, it was at the heart of a huge estate belonging to the Archbishops of Canterbury. The main settlement at this time lay around the church and the archbishops' manor house, in the area still known as Old Town.

By the 1930s, the town centre was again becoming congested, and after World War 2, the Council decided to introduce another major redevelopment scheme. The Croydon Corporation Act was passed in 1956; and this led to the building of new offices in the late 1950s at precisely the time that the Government was beginning to encourage businesses to move out of central London. Croydon, with its excellent rail links, was an ideal site for relocation; and the town boomed as an important business centre in the 1960s, with an increasing number of office blocks being built (especially in the area between Wellesley Road and East Croydon Station). Taberner House, finished in 1967, became the administrative centre of the enlarged London Borough of Croydon, created in 1965. Croydon also developed as an important centre for shopping (the Whitgift Centre opened in 1969). In the same period, Fairfield Halls opened (1962); and a new underpass, flyover, and several multi-storey car parks were built.

Croydon has continued to flourish in recent years, as the largest office and retail centre in south-east England, outside central London. At the same time, however, it has often been characterised as dull and inhuman. The late 1980s and 1990s have seen further changes, which may give the town a more attractive image in the future. These have included the demolition of some of the unfashionable 1960s office blocks; the pedestrianization of North End in 1989; and the opening of the Clocktower, an important cultural and arts centre, in 1994. A new urban light rail system, Croydon Tramlink, began operation in May 2000.
