Today this is a triangular open space with areas of grass, mature and semi-mature perimeter trees including 3 mature hybrid black poplars in the south-west and a series of ditches and culverts that were linked to the Wandle River. A concrete channel runs through the Green known as the Beddington Carrier, which takes effluent from Beddington Sewage Treatment Works to the River Wandle.
Mill Green possibly has medieval origins and was known as Cranmarsh in the C17th and later as Beddington Corner. It came within lands of Mitcham Common, but by 1895 was a separate entity and used for recreation, but since the 1990s it is once more managed by Mitcham Common Conservators.
