Open green space is essential for our health and wellbeing, and we are delighted that more people than ever are now out and about enjoying OPT land. With our commitment to the green agenda, OPT have no car parks, so why not take a cycle ride or a long walk. Help us to keep our environment, our wildlife and you safe by considering a visit outside likely peak times. All our green spaces are open.
This small site is a field across the lane from St Mary’s church in the village of Iffley.
The field lies behind a high, old stone wall with other boundaries formed by mature hedges and trees.
A hedge of trees runs north to south at the back of the field, approximately three-quarters of the way across the site. This hedge separates the main field from a narrow, longer strip of land. The eastern boundary of the strip of land, also a hedge of trees, is shared with the Iffley allotments.
The site plays an important role in preserving the rural atmosphere of the village.
Inside the gate, an interpretation board records and shares the history and environmental benefits of the field and acknowledges the generosity of the Critchley family.
