Woolwich Common :: Shared Description

The common was historically a place for the common people to graze their livestock, collect firewood and so on. But from the 18th century it was used by the military, and the Board of Ordnance acquired all the rights to the common in 1812. Nevertheless it remains a de-facto open space. In 2012 it was used for the shooting events of the London Olympics.
