  • Visitor Information

Barnes Common is a serene expanse of open grassland, peppered with patches of dense woodland and scrub. Now designated as a statutory local nature reserve, it is an excellent place to see green woodpeckers and the rare white-flowered burnet rose that bursts into colour in summertime. The site is popular with joggers and dog-walkers and also hosts fantastic cricket and football pitches. To one side, there is a monument in memory of the rock star Mark Bolan who was killed in a car crash here. It was built by his brother and has been enshrined and decorated by his many fans.
