Mitcham Court
The centre portion, first known as Elm Court, was built in 1840, the wings later. Caesar Czarnikow, a sugar merchant, lived here c.1865 - 1886 and presented the village with a new horse-drawn fire engine. Sir Harry Mallaby Deeley, M.P. conveyed the house to the borough in the mid 1930s. The ionic columned porch and the ironwork on the ground floor windows are notable features.
