The Commons were created by theWimbledon and
Putney Commons Act 1871 which transferred the estate
from Earl Spencer to a body of eight Conservators, more
commonly known today asTrustees. A staff of about 20
is engaged in running the Commons under the direction
of the Chief Executive.
The Commons comprise about 460 hectares (1,140
acres) of semi-rural countryside split between
Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath, Putney Lower
Common and the Richardson Evans Memorial Playing
Field.There is a huge diversity of habitats, from
heathlands to woodlands, supporting an impressive
and surprising range of flora and fauna.
