Join Friends of Barnes Common during London Rivers Week for an evening history walk led by its Chair, Mike Hildesley. With a focus on the Beverley Brook and the ponds, you will enjoy Mike’s enthusiastic and knowledgeable talk, with anecdotes and facts about the history of Barnes Common.

Find out about the usefulness of village ponds and what makes a healthy river, learn about how our reedbeds improve flood resilience and what important craft material osier beds produce, the water quality of Beverley Brook and lots more.

This walk will start and finish on Barnes Green in front of the OSO.
