Village Green

This area was formerly the cricket ground of Hill End Hospital. Framed by oak trees and hedgerows it is a focal point for community activity. A double ring of native trees encircle the Green. The inner circle is of Wild Service Tree; Sorbus torminalis, the ‘Forgotten Tree’ of the English landscape. It has an attractive shape and golden yellow leaves in autumn. The outer ring is Hornbeam; Carpinus betulus. Around the Green are many self set oak trees. Planting surrounding the Green will eventually form a native woodland.
