Shared path on Tooting Graveney Common
The name 'Tooting' is thought to originate in Saxon times and derive from 'Toot', meaning to look out, and 'ing', meaning meadow. The look out may have arisen from its location at the crossing (now Tooting Broadway) of two historic routes, between Clapham and Merton and between Wandsworth and Mitcham. Spellings often varied between records, including 'Totinge', 'Totyng', 'Towting', 'Tutin' and 'Tootting'.

'Graveney' derives from the name of the Gravenel family, which had large land holdings in the area in the 12th and 13th centuries.

This shared cycle and pedestrian path on Tooting Graveney Common runs from Church Lane to Tooting Bec Road.
