Common and Pool Meadow

Chipping Norton is fortunate in having retained much of its ancient common land, while in many places this has been lost for ever. We cut back brambles to save them encroaching on the pasture and paths, clear the steps down from the recreation ground, remove rubbish, and in particular, clear the streams so that they don’t get blocked up and overflow.
