Wandsworth Common in south-west London SW18 is well provided with open common land dating back to mediaeval origins. The Commons today are protected by legislation over and above other public parks. They provide wide sweeps of natural landscape, as well as amenity sports facilities. One of the most notable commons in SW18 is Wandsworth Common, which includes the former Battersea West Heath. This common is full of boundary markers, making it a unique and interesting place to visit.
