Two new village greens have been created at Dorchester on Thames and Little Wittenham.
The greens, at the historic Dyke Hills, a scheduled Iron Age settlement, and at Day’s Lock Meadow beside the River Thames, have been voluntarily registered by a beneficent landowner, Keith Ives.
Now that the land is registered local people have the right of recreation there, and the land is safe from development and encroachment for ever.
This is the culmination of a long campaign which the Open Spaces Society fought alongside local residents. It dates back to 2016 when a new landowner erected fences around these sites and denied people their long-enjoyed access there.
