Friends of Barnes Common

Now more than ever, in this challenging time, we welcome you to this very special pocket of historic, unenclosed Common land in southwest London.

Covering just 50ha (120 acres), Barnes Common is nestled in this urban setting, adjacent to one of the most densely populated cities on our planet. With habitats including nationally scarce lowland acid grassland, reed-beds, meadows, and secondary woodland, it is understandably designated as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI).

We can all help as many as possible continue to enjoy our open spaces by following recommended guidelines: respect other users, keep your distance, do not congregate and remember that we are sharing this very special space with Nature.

All regular activities and events are suspended until further notice, but we have a host of ideas for Learning from Home and we will be adding more as we go along, so please do check back from time to time.  With very best wishes from everyone at Team FoBC.
