Fields by Elsfield Road
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.
When visiting our green spaces, please follow the Countryside Code by:
- leaving no trace of your visit and taking all your litter home;
- keeping dogs under effective control and on a lead when you are around farm animals;
- leaving gates as you find them and following instructions on signs;
- keeping to footpaths and following signs where they suggest alternative routes.

These fields in Marston were purchased in four lots (between 1929 and 1937), with the help of the Pilgrim Trust. At the time the fields were not in public occupation and the Trustees feared they would be developed in a way which would have spoiled the view from Elsfield Hill over the valley of Oxford.
The fields are maintained as agricultural land.
