Little Common Stanmore (also known as Stanmore Little Common)9390

Greater London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

Like the adjacent and much larger Stanmore Common, Little Common Stanmore is part of the old common lands of Stanmore. This small area contains woodland and four ponds, two Brewery Ponds and two Spring Ponds, probably created as village ponds. Overlooking Little Common are a group of C18th and C19th cottages and nearby is Stanmore Hall.

History

There were two manors, Great Stanmore and Little Stanmore, and the area was rural until the C20th. Pump Pond retains the old pump, while to the north Caesar's Pond may have existed in Roman times.
