Up until the 19th century this was a traditional piece of common land, used for grazing. Today it is an important open space for public recreation, with the character of a village green. Tree planting by the council has focused on native species, which should bring greater wildlife value in the long term. This is clearly a popular area for an informal kick-about as well as for social activities. There is also a popular children's playground.To the south of the main common, a chain of small green spaces continues alongside the Kings Road. The grass here appears to be a little less over-managed, with lots of spring bulbs bringing colour early in the year.
