TQ0471 : The edge of Shortwood Common

taken 3 years ago, near to Staines, Surrey, Great Britain

The edge of Shortwood Common
The edge of Shortwood Common
Animals have been grazed here for centuries and in 1794 a man was sentenced to whipping for stealing Mr Watson's geese from Shortwood Common. In the past parts of Shortwood Common have been a golf course and a Victorian rubbish tip. Shortwood Pond, which is ahead in the trees to the left, was probably dug as a gravel pit in the early to mid 19th century.

In this photograph London Road (A30) is on the left. This was a Roman road.
