Ponds of Wimbledon Common

A well-illustrated book on the ponds and historic sites of Wimbledon Common with an introduction by the Rangers explaining how they are managed.

It includes the official map of the commons showing where to find the ponds, some of which began as gravel pits, or were dug out to celebrate a Royal Jubilee or the new millennium. It explains the origins of the three golf courses and of a number of monuments commemorating military and other events, and the history of the iron-age fort.

There are photos of each pond, and of the birds most commonly found at them with notes on where they breed, together with a brief guide to the history of the commons and advice on caring for the wildlife.
