Parish Green Consultation

The Parish Green area is at the heart of the village conservation area and forms an important interlude between the bustling village square with its parked cars, and our Grade-1 listed Norman Church and Churchyard with all their historical significance.  However it is also the main pedestrian (and vehicular) access to the church and Wilfrid’s cafe.

The Friends have three principal priorities:

  1. To improve the approach to the church, whilst creating a space that respects and enhances the heritage of the area and particularly the mediaeval church.
  2. To involve the local community to the greatest possible extent in the design and implementation of the plan
  3. To provide safe access for pedestrians and emergency vehicles at all times.

Our thoughts are set out in more detail in the attached consultation paper – please click on the link below:

FODC architect, John Dryden Brownlee, has also shared a scale drawing demarcating a ‘safe access’ path to the church for vehicles.  This plan can  be viewed here.
