This common covers a massive 1100 acres, making it one of the largest expanses of greenery in London. Today it is probably best known for being home to the Children's TV characters the Wombles.
But in its past it was a favourite area for duels, and so has quite a colourful history. Nowadays it is mainly used by Londoners as a nature area to walk, play sports or picnic in.
On the common there is a prehistoric site known as Caesar's Camp, situated in the southern part of the common. And on the north-eastern side is the Wimbledon Windmill that dates from the early 19th century. The windmill is open on weekends from 2pm-5pm from April to October. Next door is the Windmill Tea Rooms.
