Description

Barnes Common is common land in Barnes in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is situated in the south east of Barnes adjoining Putney Lower Common to the east and bounded to the south by the Upper Richmond Road. Registered along with Barnes Green, it is one of the largest areas of common land in Greater London, with 49.55 hectares (122.4 acres) of protected commons. It is also a Local Nature Reserve. Its facilities include a full-size football pitch and a nature trail. The Common, which is made up of mixed broadleaf woodland, scrubland and acid grassland, is generally flat. The Common is owned by the Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral, acting through the Church Commissioners. It is managed by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, which is advised and assisted by the Friends of Barnes Common. The Friends organise volunteer work on the Common, campaign on issues that affect it and seek to enhance the biodiversity and amenity value for everyone's benefit.
