Clapham Common
 (голосов: 0)
Clapham CommonClapham Common. There was an ancient village on the site of the present Clapham, recorded as Cloppaham c.880 and as Clopeham in the Domesday Book. The name is derived from the Old English clap, 'a hill' and ham, 'home' - this wording for hill usually refers to one on stubby ground. The Common was called Clapham Common in 1718 and the meaning of the word is a track of open land used in common by the inhabitants of the town.

The station was opened as CLAPHAM COMMON on 3 June 1900.
