Welcome!  Barnes Common is an area of historic, unenclosed common land covering 100 acres (50Ha). Unusual in an urban setting, it provides a varied landscape of meadows, woodland and rough grassland with heath. The Common is designated as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI). 

The Friends of Barnes Common (FoBC) aim to protect and enhance the Common for local residents, visitors and future generations. If you would like to join FoBC please Contact Us.   Become Involved provides more details if you are interested in helping us look after this valuable green space. 


The Friends of Barnes Common is a not-for-profit organisation.  

We are affiliated to the Barnes Community Association and associated with the South West London Environment Network
