Old Malden is a Ward (country subdivision) of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames south west of Charing Cross. Along with Coombe, Kingston upon Thames and Kingston Vale it is one of the more affluent areas in the borough. At the United Kingdom Census 2001 its population was 9,012, out of a total of 147,273 for the whole borough.

History

The area has a long history as the ancient parish of '''Malden''', derived from the Old English language ''mæl duna'', meaning 'the cross on the hill'.

Malden appears in ''Domesday Book'' of 1086 as ''Meldone'', held partly by William de Wateville and partly by Robert de Wateville. Its domesday assets were: 4 hide (unit)s and 3 virgates; 1 chapel, 1 Mill (grinding) worth 12s, 6½ ploughs, of meadow, woodland worth 1 hog out of 7 hog (swine)s. It rendered £7 12s 0d.

St John the Baptist Church, close to the Hogsmill, dates back to Anglo-Saxons times. In 1611 the chancel's old flint walls were repaired and the nave and the tower rebuilt in brick. In 1875 a new nave and chancel were added, and in 2004 a two storey extension was completed. The current Vicar is the Revd Kevin Scott MA.

The Grade II listed ''Manor House'', next to St John's, is also mentioned in the ''Domesday Book''; in 1264 Walter de Merton, Bishop of Rochester, founded a college here that was later moved to Oxford as Merton College, Oxford. The house was later used as a court in the reign of Henry VIII, and in the mid 18th century the house was the home of Captain Cook. In 1852 the Hogsmill River was the setting for the background of Ophelia painted by John Everett Millais.

Malden became Old Malden in 1870, with the development of New Malden, two miles (3 km) to the north in the parish of Kingston upon Thames (parish).

Geography

At the heart of Old Malden is Plough Green, a traditional village green, surrounded by:
* ''The Plough'', a 15th-century public house, containing a Harvester (restaurant) restaurant;
* a small parade of shops, which includes the Plough Bakery, two Indian restaurants (the ''Rupali'' and the ''Shalimar'') and a convenience store;
* an Italian restaurant, the ''A Roma'';
* a pond, home to a family of moorhens and two mallards.

To the west of Plough Green is Old Malden Library.

The Parish Church of Old Malden is St John the Baptist, and can be found just beyond the width restriction in Church Road. There was a church building here at the time of the Domesday Book. The present building comprises the 1611 re-build, the 1875 extension and another extension added in 2004. The Vicar is the Revd Kevin Scott MA who was licensed to the parish in 2003.

Old Malden is served by Malden Manor railway station station to the north and Worcester Park railway station station to the south, both 25 minutes from London Waterloo station. Malden Road, joining the green and Worcester Park station was flanked by two rows of over forty mature poplar trees until 2010, when most were felled as a safety measure due to internal rotting. Replacement oaks were planted later that year.
