Cow on Church End Green 02

The Parish Council has been doing its homework. This follows a query raised at a previous council meeting, concerning the status of the green areas in the village.

It has now been ascertained that in 1968 Church End Green and Townsend Green were registered as Village Greens and Fort End Green and Skittles Green are Commons.

Grazing rights were granted to Mr T Bucknell on Church End Green for 60 cattle, 20 sheep and 20 pigs and Mr S Clarke for 30 ducks, 10 geese and 10 lambs.

Now that this is public knowledge we may see local gardeners out with their spades and buckets, looking for some free fertilizer!
