The common is partly grass and partly shrubs and woodland and forms an important and historic green area in this part of London despite the roads that cross and surround it. Buildings around the common include a Regency gothic villa, but is predominantly of the later C19th.
Tooting Bec Common and Tooting Graveney Common, together with Streatham Green are the remains of common land that once stretched as far as Mitcham. An avenue of trees marks the former boundary line between the two commons, now to all intents and purposes one.
