Across London there are 8 deep level air raid shelters which is a reminder of the Second World War. Out of these 8 there are 3 found in Clapham across the North, Common and South. Clapham Common is one the best parks in London that has festivals, fire work displays and regular fairs. It also has the biggest bandstand in London. Up until 1965 Clapham used to be in the Wandsworth borough but, when it divided, Clapham was moved over to the London borough of Lambeth.
