The Magdalen Estate | Wandsworth
MagdalenEstate.co.uk has been developed for The Magdalen Estate in Wandsworth, London. We aim to provide a rich resource of information that will be useful to both existing residents and new arrivals to the area.

This has been set up by the community for the community. Please contact us if you have any questions, information or photos you would like to contribute to the website.
Our long term aim is for the majority of house transactions in the area are done through this community website rather than through the parasitical estate agents who make a fortune out our community.
