Wimbledon Common, along with the Putney Lower Common and Putney Heath forms the sprawling Wimbledon and Putney Commons area with 460 hectares of woodlands and open grass areas. It is home to a windmill, golf course, nature trails, ponds and a hill fort known as Caesar's Camp. With a great variety of flora and fauna especially around the bog, this open space is a calm space to unwind in the lap of nature and was once a camping ground for gypsies. The nine ponds on the grounds which attract migratory birds are the hubs of summer crowds. It hosts weekly runs, as well as soccer, cricket and rugby matches. The windmill at the Wimbledon Windmill Museum is a Grade II listed structure which has been a part of the local community since 1817. For
