Putney Lower Common

Located approximately ½ mile west of Putney town centre, Putney Lower Common is separated from the main body of the Commons by a distance of just over a mile.

The main part of the Common is bounded to the east by a new school and apartments and then merges seamlessly into Barnes Common to the west. The area’s broad grass meadows and cricket pitch have managed to retain a village green character which is very much in contrast to many other parts of the Commons.

The area lies on London Clay and during the spring the meadows are adorned with cow parsley. To the north is a riverside walk that leads out onto the Thames Towpath.

To reach Putney Lower Common from Roehampton the shortest way is via Putney Park Lane, an unmade thoroughfare starting at the northern edge of Putney Heath.
