The land here was owned by Magdalen College Oxford and in the early C20th it was planned to build Magdalen Park Estate as a Garden Suburb here, designed by E P Warren.

By the First World War houses between Garratt Lane and Swaby Road, and part between Lyford Road and Ellerton Road had been built but the scheme was essentially truncated when in the 1920s Wandsworth Borough Council purchased the area between Swaby Road and Open View for the Openview Estate, and in the 1930s the area between Fieldview and Ellerton Road for the Fieldview Estate.
The Fieldview Estate was laid out on a grid of streets with groups of maisonettes designed to look like semi-detached housing, with wide footpaths, grass verges now tarmaced and street trees.

Godley Road Recreation Ground was provided as a central area of public open space. It is a railed enclosure with grass, trees and raised brick planters.
