  25. The Broadwater Road Gate to Streatham Cemetery in Tooting has Re-Opened after Many Years

    After more than 20 years of being closed the Broadwater Road Gate to Streatham Cemetery in Tooting has been repaired and re-opened for use by the public. An opening ceremony was held on Sunday 6 July 2014 to mark the re-opening and to celebrate the improvements to the cemetery near the entrance, which include new landscaped garden areas, a new community notice board and a new wooden bench (with more to come). The Friends of Streatham Cemetery, the Groundwork London charity and Lambeth Council (the owner of the cemetery) worked together to get the gate re-opened. It is hoped that this will lead to an underutilised 40 acre tranquil green space right in the in the middle of Tooting being used more by the local community. The cemetery is full of many plants and animals and it is a pleasant place for a stroll. This gate will also allow local people to once again use the footpaths in the cemetery as a quicker and more pleasant walking route to get from Broadwater Road (off Upper Tooting Road) through to Garratt Lane (between Smallwood & Wimbledon roads) missing all the traffic, noise and crowds outside.
