Cultivation Remains; the common fields of the parish were enclosed by Act of Parliament in 1803. The apparent enclosure of land here in 1607 which led to riots must have been on a small scale, for in 1803 there was only one other small enclosed field beyond the normal'old enclosures' around the village. Small areas of ridge-and-furrow of the former common fields still remain, or can be traced on air photographs, over the whole parish in the form of interlocked furlongs of C-shape. Ridge-and-furrow survives E. and N. E. of the village, alongside a small brook. It is straight or curved, within existing fields and with well-marked headlands, was all within old enclosures in 1803.

Addington Park is a park situated in Addington in the London Borough of Croydon. The park covers an area of 24.5 acres. The ground of the park was acquired in 1930 following negotiations with the owners of the Addington Palace Estate; the Park and Lodge formed the southern part of the historic park of Addington Park which surrounds Addington Palace, where the Archbishops of Canterbury made their summer home in the early 19th century. The park is an ancient hunting site belonging to the Manor of Addington; the original manor house of the Leigh family stood behind the church and is recorded on old maps as a hunting seat of King Henry VIII. The nearby church of St. Mary's, dates back to the 11th century, the chancel and nave were built about 1080 and the original flint tower followed in the 12th century. Addington Palace was built by Alderman Trecothick of London in 1768 to replace the old manor house and was known as Addington Park; the surrounding parkland was laid out in 1782 by the famous 18th-century landscape designer'Capability' Brown a year before he died.
Brown had landscaped many of the great houses and stately homes of England sweeping away formal gardens and sometimes whole villages. Brown's style was to create as sweeping natural landscape with clumps and singular specimen parkland trees, with a dense tree belt planted around the perimeter. Much of the landscape that survives today is the remains of his design; the Archbishops made a number of alterations and additions to the mansion and extended the park northwards. The historic park has been laid out; the mansion was for many years home to The Royal School of Church Music, but is now used as a Country Club and for conferences. At the south-west corner of the Park is South Lodge which dates from the time of Archbishop Howley early 19th century; the park is Grade II listed on English Heritage's Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England and one of only two sites in the borough to be included. The park is located next to Addington Interchange, a tram and bus interchange.
It is served by a Tramlink stop, Gravel Hill tram stop, on Tramlink. List of Parks and Open Spaces in Croydon Addington Hills Ashburton Park Woodside Green London Borough of Croydon London Borough of Croydon - History
Addington Railway Workshops
The Addington Railway Workshops was a major railway facility established in the Christchurch suburb of Addington in May 1880 by the New Zealand Railways Department. The workshops closed in 1990. Addington Railway Workshops were opened in 1877-8 to overhaul and construct railway equipment, to assemble locomotives being imported from England. In 1889, the workshops were responsible for building the first locomotive to be built by NZR, W 192 and continued to build locomotives up to the early 1920s; as well as railway work, Addington undertook contract work such as the manufacture of gold dredge components. During the 1920s, Addington was re-geared to manufacture and overhaul rolling stock, although it continued to carry out limited overhauls on steam locomotives and the EC and EO class electric locomotives. Limited locomotive construction resumed in 1962 with the construction of the DSC class centre-cab shunting locomotives. Addington assembled the Mitsubishi DSA and DSB class diesel-hydraulic shunting locomotives in 1967-8 and four of the five Toshiba DSJ class centre-cab shunters in 1984.
Due to the rationalisation of the New Zealand Railways Corporation following deregulation in 1987, Addington Workshops closed on 14 December 1990. The site was cleared with the exception of the former water down; the remainder of the site was sold to Ngāi Tahu for redevelopment as a shopping centre, named Tower Junction after the former workshops water tower. The Addington Water Tower is registered with Heritage New Zealand as a Category I heritage building, registration number 5390. Addington Workshops built NZR's first locomotive, W 192. Locomotive building ceased in the 1960s with the DSC class, although four DSJ class locomotives were assembled from imported kitsets in the early 1980s.
