Beddington is a lightly settled settlement in the London Borough of Sutton on the boundary with the London Borough of Croydon formed from a village of the same name which until early the 20th century still included land which became termed entirely as Wallington. The BedZED low energy housing estate (or Beddington Zero Energy Development) is, in non-ecclesiastical terms, in the neighbouring locality of Hackbridge. The latter was in the 13th century shown on local maps as Hakebrug, and named after a bridge on the River Wandle. The locality has a landscaped wooded park at Beddington Park - also known as Carew Manor; and a nature reserve and sewage treatment works in the centre and to the north of its area respectively.
