SU1869 : Marlborough Common

taken 1 year ago, near to Marlborough, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Marlborough Common
Marlborough Common
Owned by Marlborough Town Council, Marlborough Common was given to the borough by King John (reigned 1196 to 1216) as pasture for livestock. At one time, cattle and sheep fairs were held on the Common and were once also held on The Green, thereby giving the names to neighbouring 'Herd Street' and 'Blowhorn Street'. These days the Common is used for recreation.
