Pronounce 'Tooting Graveney Common' Audio
A Quick Overview of Tooting Graveney Common
The Tooting Commons consist of two adjacent areas of common land lying between Balham, Streatham and Tooting, in south west London: Tooting Bec Common and Tooting Graveney Common.
- Since 1996, they have been wholly within the London Borough of Wandsworth, which has administered both commons since 1971.
- Between 1965 and 1995, the eastern part of Tooting Bec Common was within the adjacent London Borough of Lambeth.
- Wandsworth's Parks Department erroneously described the two historically separate spaces as Tooting Common for many years, but recent signage uses the plural title.
