The City of London
Farthing Downs has been owned and managed by the City of London Corporation since 1883,
The City of London Corporation provides local government services for the financial and commercial heart of Britain — the "Square Mile". However, its responsibilities extend far beyond the City boundaries. It also provides a host of additional facilities for the benefit of the nation.
In the 1870s the City was concerned that access to the open countryside was being threatened, and as a result promoted two Acts of Parliament to enable it to acquire and protect open spaces from development.
Since that time the City has protected some of the most important public open spaces in the UK, including Epping Forest, Burnham Beeches and Hampstead Heath. Farthing Downs is one of seven open spaces in the Surrey and South London area that are known collectively as the City Commons.
