Stanley Common

Beverley Foster. Stanley and beyond

Stanley Common is an area of public land surrounding the capital of the Falkland Islands, Stanley. As with most areas of common land, it was set aside for the benefit of the community and to meet its needs. In recent years the use of Stanley Common has shifted from predominantly grazing opportunities for people in town to predominantly being used for recreational opportunities.It is also designated as a National Nature Reserve to protect the natural environment.
