Residents and visitors are enjoying the beautiful wild views of the common, and it is famous for dog walking, cycling and running. It is believed that Kenley Common was cleared of forest in prehistoric times to be cultivated for crops and later for grazing. In medieval times, Kenley Common and Riddlesdown formed part of the wasteland of the Manor of Watendone.
