Fancy a Plum?



Fancy a Plum?

Goats used to graze here up until the 1970s

Location: Plumstead Common Road, SE18

Description: 'Plumstead Common' is located in the London Borough of Greenwich.

It is bound to the north by Old Mill Road and to the south by Plumstead Common Road. To the east lies Winn or Winn's Common - substantial remains of the Old Mill still stand and have been incorporated into the public house of the same name.

Edwin Cross was the last known commoner to exercise the right of letting small cattle (goats) graze on Plumstead Common and neighbouring Woolwich Common in the 1970s.

With green open spaces and pubs should you need some light refreshment, and the PCEG (Plumstead Common Environment Group) - formed in the Spring of 1991 - who work to conserve and maintain the green and built environment of Plumstead Common...this is another of London's good places to go!
