Friends of the Old Common

The Old Common is part of the War Memorial Park complex and  the last remnant of the pre-19th Century Basingstoke Common.


While  the area of the common occasionally  serves as  car parking space for major events in Basingstoke, the common is more  often a quiet area  for walking the dog or enjoing an uncluttered green space.

The group,  which was formed in 2016, is working to improve the biodiversity  of the green space for the benefit of  wildlife and the enjoyment of people.

If you would like to get involved please contact Helen Richards at and follow us on Facebook at
