Stanmore Little Common

Stanmore Little Common is a small green space adjoining Wood Lane in northern Stanmore. It contains the Upper and Lower Spring Ponds, which are probably man made, dating from at least Roman times and possibly earlier. Indeed Upper Spring Pond is also known as Caesar's Pond, based on a tradition that there was a Roman garrison quartered near there. Boudicca (Boadicea) almost certainly camped by and drank from these ponds. It is these stony ponds or "Stane Meres" that gave Stanmore its name.
