Eel Brook Common is common land in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, close to Fulham Broadway Station, with its southern boundary on New Kings Road, Chelsea.[1]According to the Fulham Society, the name actually is a derivative of 'hill brook common' - which relates to Musgrave Crescent, which is raised much higher than the surrounding land. It is believed that this is artificial and it probably was originally a Bronze Age mound - either a raised piece of ground to defend against attackers, or as a burial mound. When you leave Eel Brook Common from the north side, you go up a steep ramp - up onto Musgrave Crescent.
