Where

Wimbledon Common is a huge area of open heath and woodland, stretching for more than two miles, it is criss-crossed by paths and horse tracks. In the north-east corner is a windmill dating from 1817. Baden-Powell wrote part of ‘Scouting for Boys’ while living at the windmill in 1908, which is now a small museum on windmills. Its tearoom is open all year.   The Wimbledon Society’s Museum at The Village Club, Ridgeway, 26 Lingfield Road has an exhibition relating to the history of the area.  But we think Wimbledon Common is best known for its famous litter-collecting Wombles!        Admission free
