About the Pewterspear Green Area
The parkland and recreational area have been designed along the lines of a traditional village green, this character is reinforced by the nearby Church, Primary School and the village pub 'The Cat and Lion'. The Oak Avenue to the east of the green forms a green corridor along the eastern boundary adjacent to agricultural land.
Pedestrian routes within the parkland are set in landscaped corridors and these provide links to the surrounding areas including a north/south path to the Church and School which follows the route of a former Roman Road (King Street).
Opportunities for informal recreation are centred around existing ponds found on the site some of which have been enhanced with the installation of timber boardwalks and bridges.
The formal sports facilities include a cricket pitch and pavilion adjacent to the A49 (London Road, 3/4 mile north of the M56, junction 10) three junior soccer pitches and two senior soccer pitches.
The Pavilion was built with the support of the National Lottery funding through Sports England. As well as accommodating changing and refreshment facilities for the sports clubs it is also used by a range of organisations for meetings, recreation and commercial activities.
