On Streatham Common
On Streatham Common
At the time of Domesday, Lime Common as it was then known stretched from Norwood to Tulse Hill. The original Streatham Spa was founded when springs of medicinal value were discovered on the common in 1660. By the start of the 19th century, the boundaries of Streatham Common were virtually the same as they are today. The battles upholding commoners' rights against enclosure, which took place over so many commons, do not seem to have occurred here. The common was managed by a committee of local inhabitants until 1883 when it was placed under the control of the Metropolitan Board of Works. The church in the distance is Immanuel and St Andrew on Streatham High Road.
