Clapham Common is one of London's largest open spaces, situated between Clapham, Battersea and Balham.
It was historically common land for the parishes of Battersea and Clapham and was first mentioned as far back as 1086 in the famous Domesday Book as being part of the Manor of Clapham.
In 1877 it was acquired from the Lords of the Manors by the Metropolitan Board of Works and was protected for present and future generations.
