A smaller area of the common extends to the east of Gunnersbury Ave, including Leopold Road. The western boundary includes The Common and Warwick Dene, with Elm Avenue to the south.OwnershipThe Ealing Common open space is a common land as designated by the 1866 Metropolitan Commons Act.HistoryOn Monday, 20 August 1733, a cricket match with important status was played on the common between Ealing & Acton and London. The result is unknown but the terms of the match were "for £50, play or pay", a substantial prize. London was the sport's premier club at the time. This is the only mention of Ealing & Acton and of Ealing Common in the surviving records of early cricket. The strength of the Ealing & Acton team cannot now be determined but the stake was high and the match was reported in a newspaper, Berington's Evening Post.
