Stoke Common is located in South Buckinghamshire between the villages of Stoke Poges and Fulmer.
Stoke Common is divided by roads into three distinct areas and are known as the Main Common, West Common and North Common.
Stoke Common contains the largest remnant of Buckinghamshire’s once extensive heathland. Created by a combination of poor, acidic soils and land management which includes grazing. By promoting the open heathland vegetation, important habitats are provided for some very rare plants, animals and insects that are quite different from those of grassland and woodlands. Heathland is one of the rarest habitats in Britain.
