Wander Streatham Common

At the Southern end of Lambeth Borough, Streatham Common is a large open space at the southern tip of Lambeth, in an area was once part of a larger ancient common of the manor of south Streatham.

The modern Common still has significant areas of acid grassland and woodland, and is also home to the formal gardens of the Rookery - laid out on a site where people used to come to take the mineral waters of Streatham Spa - and is also home to various amenities such as a playground, a summertime paddling pool and a tennis court.
