Lincoln's West Common is a 100 hectare, green space with excellent views of Lincoln Cathedral. At the west limit of Lincoln, this grassy area is home to wildlife as well as a space for outdoor sports.
Horses can be found grazing across this whole area, a site dating back to the 11th century and the High Medievak Era's common grazing rights. The area is a popular space for the horse's owners to ride and train the horses. Alongside this is other wildlife including a population of skylark.
Recently refurbished tennis courts are also found on the north side of the Common and Carholme Golf Club can be found to the south. You'll also find football pitches and grass tennis courts in West Common.
You can enter West Common from the west end of West Parade, from Carholme Road or from Long Leys Road.
