Friends of Barnes Common

Friends of Barnes Common

Welcome 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 welcome individuals, groups, external partners and anyone interested in helping us in our stewardship. Together, we aim to conserve and enhance this space for today – and for future generations. If you would like to know more or have stories to share, please get in touch.
